Sad news, indeed.


A baby giant panda born just one week ago at the National Zoo died on Sunday of still-to-be determined causes.

Panda keepers and volunteers "heard a distress vocalization from the mother, Mei Xiang, at 9:17 am and notified the veterinarian staff immediately," zoo officials said.

"The staff were able to safely retrieve the cub for an evaluation at 10:22 am. Veterinarians immediately performed CPR and other life-saving measures but the cub did not respond," the statement said.

The part that breaks my heart. the mother was "crying" (my word). That just goes to show that our animal friends have more in common with us than we realize...
