With his ankles held by firefighters, Passmore was able to pull the dog out. It emerged dirty but unharmed. The rescuers left the hole open to allow the cat to leave when i...Keep on reading: Firefighters help rescue dog from tunnel dug by tortoise.....»»

Sad farewell as Malaysia-born panda heads to China

Malaysia's first locally-born giant panda headed to its homeland China on Tuesday, with officials bidding a sad goodbye to the female cub. Two-year-old Nuan Nuan, whose name means "warmth", was born in Malaysia's national zoo in August 2015 a year after her parents Feng Yi and Fu Wa arrived in the country on a 10-year loan from China. In the wild, giant pandas can only be found in China's mountainous central regions where their favourite food, bamboo, grows in abundance. But as part of its policy of "panda diplomacy", Beijing loans the animals to countries worldwide as a goodwill gesture. Its agreement with Malaysia provides that cubs born in captivity must be handed back...Keep on reading: Sad farewell as Malaysia-born panda heads to China.....»»

Second giant panda cub born in Malaysia

A giant panda loaned to Malaysia from China has given birth to a second cub during its stay in the Southeast Asian country, zoo officials said Wednesday. The baby was born Sunday to Liang Liang, who has been on loan to Malaysia since 2014 along with a male panda, said Mat Naim Ramli, director of the national zoo's panda center outside Kuala Lumpur.
