Sickly sad, makes me almost want to through up to think about this maltreatment. To go to the community and ask for help should have been what the Chinese Zoo officials had done. Or was this financial crisis of no money to feed animals really just a cover up to use the bones for making wine? I wish we could convince china to use herbal therapy instead of animal remains, a country that large should not be allowed to use Voodoo like rituals for health.

China's zoos should not be allowed to operate anymore!

The Chinese attitude toward animals is ONLY to use them for food or medicine. Millions of turtles have been destroyed throughout Asia because the Chinese like their taste and don't give a damn if they're endangered or not. They're willing to exterminate tigers, rhinos, bears and countless other species because they believe body parts are good for erectile difficulties. Purveyors of these substances are known to mix them with viagra, so they appear to work.

Meanwhile, every panda you see outside China is literally "rented" for a million US dollars per year.

This money is ALLEGEDLY used to benefit wildlife.

Don't support pandas in zoos unless you want to contribute to Chinese arrogance about endangered species.
