We are still dealing with a severe drought in Montana, but the pandas may not have been able to fix the problem for quite a while.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that “pandas have not been able even to irrigate the irrigation ditches around the pandan garden because of their size.”
The San Francisco Times reports that the panda’s garden “has become an international phenomenon,” with more than 100 million panda eggs being collected, but that the garden’s “panda population is now approaching 100 million.”
According to the Times, there are “no pandas left in the San Francisco Bay Area, though some are still in hibernation.”
However, “several” pandas have been born in the past year, according to the Chronicle, and “one was spotted in San Diego last month.”
The pandas “have been unable to survive without food for their young,” according to local officials.
