Mao Mao the Panda was Buried Yesterday :'(

So sad. :'(

Mao Mao the panda was laid to rest on Tuesday in China's famed Wolong Nature Reserve where a freshly dug grave awaited.

"Nearly a month after she was crushed to death when China's devastating earthquake collapsed the wall of her enclosure, 9-year-old Mao Mao was laid to rest in a quiet corner of the Wolong panda breeding center.

The facility was badly damaged by the May 12 quake but officials initially thought all 64 pandas had survived. Then they discovered two were missing. Mao Mao's body was discovered on Monday, buried under debris." [AP]
