Panda ‘had cubs just to get more zoo handouts’


GIANT panda Lun Lun has been accused of exploiting the zoo welfare system after having two cubs in captivity.

Following the birth of twin cubs at a zoo in Atlanta, Republican Tom Logan said: “That’s more bamboo coming straight out of the taxpayer’s pocket.

“I wonder if Lun Lun would have been so fertile in the wild, where no-one’s going to give her a free enclosure with nice foliage and a water feature.

“And I’d like to know where the father is in all this. Probably disappeared back into the mists of some distant jungle to get some other pandas pregnant, I imagine.”
