Poor Mao Mao was found crushed by the wall of her enclosure this week...she was the last of the missing pandas to be found and the only one killed by the earthquake....still it is such a sad sad thing. Especially when you see the images of the keepers at the graveside.

Suzanne Braden of Pandas International was attending the service as she had just arrived in Wolong last week. Here's more of the story for you to read. Dear Mao Mao....rest in peace!!

I am so very sad to Hear about poor Mao Mao, I feel so sorry for her keeper. I was really hoping that she would be found alive and ok. I am so sad. I hope that all the pandas wild and in the reserves will all be alright. God bless the keepers and all the pandas and the people of china.

Just catching up at our den and the news of Mao Mao...

I'm so saddened to hear of her passing, what a beautiful girl she was....RIP dear sweetie!

As I was visiting the PandaCam link at San Diego Zoo I also found somemore info about Mao Mao. I wished I was more savvy to post the link but maybe someone else can? Its in the Zoo blog, it touched my heart deeply....

The short version-- she was found and rescued as a cub in 2000, was part of the first enrichment study at Wolong, and became a star breeder in 2003 producing 5 babies in the next three seasons.

Sadly she was witnessed breeding again this spring and may have been pregnant at the time she was found... The one consolation is that her 5 babies will certainly keep her memory alive.

May all the people and panda's of China find strength, peace, and comfort in the days ahead....

Oh this story brings tears to my eyes to read. I feel so deeply for Mao Mao's keeper and what a touching and sweet gesture of him to leave her favourite foods as an offering at her grave.

While the loss is heartbreaking, I count my blessings that more pandas weren't lost and that there are many people willing to help and give like we have from all over the world.
