Chicken Soup for the Panda

An official from the Wuhan Zoo said zookeepers there have been feeding their two pandas homemade chicken soup twice a month to ease stress and boost nutrition.

The Chinese are firm believers in chicken soup being good for health and said the pandas were reeling from a busy holiday week which drew large numbers of visitors. The soup was mixed into their normal diet of bamboo shoots and milk. The pandas are said to have enjoyed the dish and had no problems with digestion.
