Ann, the oldest male giant panda in the world, dies at Ocean Park in Hong Kong at the age of 35

Hong Kong, July 21: The oldest male giant panda in captivity died at the age of 35 at a Hong Kong theme park after poor health. Ann spent most of her life at Ocean Park after being presented to Hong Kong by China in 1999. The female panda, Jia Jia, died in 2016 at the age of 38 and became the oldest female panda in history in captivity. .. Ocean Park mourned Anne as a member of her family who grew up with the park and forged bonds with locals and tourists.

“Ann brought us happy memories with many heartwarming moments. Ocean Park Corporation Chairman Paulopon said in a statement that his wisdom and playfulness would be greatly lost.”

Ann had high blood pressure and was a common symptom of old pandas. For the past three weeks, Anne Anne has been obscured by park visitors due to her poor health. He stopped eating solid foods, and recently his activity has slowed significantly. See: The National Zoo celebrated 50 years of care and protection of giant pandas.

Last week, hundreds of people commented on Anne Anne’s post on Ocean Park, hoping he would recover quickly. He was euthanized Thursday morning to prevent further distress, after Ocean Park veterinarians and government officials consulted with the Giant Panda’s China Conservation Research Center, Ocean Park said.

“An lived a full life that ended at the age of 35-equivalent to 105 at human age,” the statement read. Hong Kong was given another panda pair (Ying Ying for women and Le Le for men) to celebrate her 10th anniversary of her return to China in 2007. China generally engages in “panda diplomacy,” and mammals found only in China are lent to other countries as a sign of goodwill.
