Giant panda abused in NW China zoo?

Mistreatment was suspected after photos posted online show a giant panda bleeding at the Lanzhou zoo in NW China’s Gansu Province.

However, after an investigation, the zoo said on Sunday that the panda had been injured as it was scratching an itch on stones, and zoo keepers have given it anti-inflammatory medication.

Zoo staff say the 22-year-old male bear, which was transferred to Lanzhou in May this year, is in good health conditions.
