TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taipei Zoo's giant panda welcomed her second baby on Sunday (June 28).

The giant panda Yuanyuan (圓圓) gave birth to her second cub You Zai (幼仔) after suffering five hours of labor pain in Taipei Zoo yesterday (Jun 28), according to the Zoo's Facebook page. Yuan Zai (圓仔), Yuanyuan's first child, was born in 2013.

The spokesperson for the zoo, Tsao Hsien-shao (曹先紹), shared that workers tried to let the mother panda take care of her baby, but she seemed to be very tired and lacked nursing experience, so they had to take over, reported CNA. Tsao said the cub had back injuries and was not fed until 5 hours after it was born.

However, Yuan Zai is now in good shape after treatment by the veterinarian.    [FULL  STORY]
