I actually have a rare case of it. The Giant Panda went extinct in the late 80s. I distinctly remember my science class spending a day talking about
endangered species because of it. The last specimen had just died in a Beijing zoo. The Chinese Government had decided the resources in their natural
habitat were more important than the pandas, so they all died in the wild by 81. In 89, the last captive one died. They don't breed well in captivity.
And they died off. The last one to die was a 20 year old male.
But, that never happened. Regardless of the numerous nightly news reports I watched with my parents that covered it (60 minutes, Ted Koppel, blah blah
IT never happened. But I know it did. Just like I know that the week before I discovered they were alive in the 90s, my grandmother got in a car
accident that didn't exist 6 days later. Her car was totalled, a 91 Honda Accord. But suddenly she was driving it again, she was fine, I inherited the
car in 97, and pandas were alive again in 94.
