Depressed Panda Gets Flat Screen T.V.
Just like humans, animals have friends they become attached to, and when that friend is gone they can get depressed. That’s what happened to a Sijia the panda at a Chinese zoo. When her best friend and playmate Meixi left, Sijia became depressed.
The giant panda had a very hard time after her friend left, moping around and not eating. Zoo officials decided to spice things up in her pen by adding swings, monkey bars and other things for the panda to climb on. They also added a flat screen T.V. that plays videos of her and her friend when they were together, and seems to have done the trick. Sijia has perked-up and is starting to act more like herself.
