Hopes for panda cub


The UK’s only female panda has been artificial­ly inseminate­d in the latest attempt to produce a cub.

Tian Tian underwent the procedure at Edinburgh Zoo during her annual health check.

Keepers said it is too early to know if she is pregnant.

The zoo said: “We are pleased to say that all went well. We will all be keeping our fingers crossed.”

Artificial­ly inseminati­ng Tian Tian is said to be a “critical part of the giant panda internatio­nal breeding programme”.
