Chiang Mai —
Lin Hui, Thailand’s famous giant panda, sadly died this morning, April 19th, at Chiang Mai Zoo in northern Thailand, officials have confirmed.
The famous female panda just turned 21 years old a few short months ago.
Her cause of death is still awaiting final clarification from the zoo officials, though reports said that the panda fell ill and displayed abnormal symptoms yesterday.
Lin Hui along with her mate, Xuang Xuang, were loaned to Chiang Mai Zoo from China back in October 2003. They were loved by the entire nation, as over 8 million visitors had dropped by the famous zoo to admire the cuteness of the pair.
Chiang Mai locals and netizens across the country bid their farewell to Lin Hui.
