World's oldest panda in captivity dies in Hong Kong

The Wrap

The oldest giant panda living in captivity was euthanised in Hong Kong at age 38, after rapidly deteriorating health over the past two weeks. Jia Jia had been suffering from severe arthritis, liver failure and was almost completely blind. Pandas are endangered because most of their natural habitat has been destroyed for timber, farming and construction, according to the World Wildlife Fund.
