Here’s Why Teddy Locsin Rejects Offer Of Panda as Gift to PH
TEDDY LOCSIN – Here is the reason why Foreign Secretary Teddy Locsin rejected the offer of panda as gift to the Philippines.
A bear that’s native to south central China is called Panda. They are large creatures with black patches on their eyes, ears, and across its body. They can live up to 30 years.
Based on a report from Philstar, a giant panda named Chuang Chuang died on September 16 at a Chiang Mai Zoo in Thailand. The Chinese government agency said it died from heart attack. Pandas are used to cold climate and they couldn’t take Thailand’s tropical weather.
Foreign Secretary Teddy Locsin Jr. retweeted the news. He cited the death of the panda and said he reportedly rejected an offer of panda as a gift to the Philippines. He did not disclose the name of the country.
“Why I politely dismissed an offer to give us one… We can’t starve another animal to death in a dead zoo. We’re just no good at this,” he wrote.
Several netizens reacted to Teddy Locsin’s tweet. Here are some of their comments on the post:
@momblogger: “Good you refused. I visited the pandas at Chengdu and they live in very cool weather conditions.”
@tjrcuenca: “agree. it was wise and just right to refuse. we can’t just let the panda fly here and eventually die.”
@jake00blue: “What do they call it again. How a panda is a sign of friendship with china. Should we have one by now?”
