Rare giant panda born in Belgium

By Ines Kagubare BRUGELETTE, Belgium (Reuters) – A giant panda has given birth in a Belgian zoo, a rare event for an endangered species that numbers fewer than 2,000 worldwide. The male cub was born overnight at the Paira Daiza wildlife park to six-year-old Hao Hao and her mate Xing Hui, officials from the zoo told a news conference. World nature organization WWF says a survey in 2014 found only 1,864 giant pandas living in the wild, almost double the numbers in the late 1970s and 17 percent up in a decade.Animal and Pet News
