Must be more money in it for them ,the panda's will go the way of all other animals in china,torture kill and end up in some weird and wonderful potion to help in their forever quest for something to help their obvious lack of libido.

Noted. I'm surprised there's many Panda's left. Actually i'm more surprised that they have not started eating them. Give it time. Thanks.

I would have thought China had enough money as they are lending to everyone else and would not have to do this but then we all know China does not care about animals They only see them as meat or medicine

I loathe filthbag Asia. They are determined to kill all animals and totally destroy the environment.

I totally agree with Carol D.. I'm surprised that they haven't eaten them all by now.

This is a great pity that they feel they have to do this. It's easy to destroy forests, not so easy to restore them.

They won't let the pandas be destroyed, they make way too much money out of selling them to other countries for zoos, or loaning them out to zoos temporarily.

They had no compassion for the little girl that was being run over by a truck last year, you think they are going to care about Animals!?
