    Background: THE LONDON ZOO'S GIANT PANDA, CHI-CHI, WAS FLOWN TO MOSCOW TODAY (FRIDAY) TO BE MATED WITH AN-AN THE ONLY OTHER GIANT PANDA IN CAPTIVITY OUTSIDE THEIR HOMELAND, THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. CHI-CHI IS BEING MATED BECAUSE IT'S SAID SHE'S "PINING FOR MOTHERHOOD."
    CHI-CHI LEFT LONDON IN A BRITISH EUROPEAN AIRWAYS AIRLINER WITH 33 OTHER PASSENGERS AND THE LONDON AIRPORTS'S HEAD KEEPER, MR. SAM MORTON. SHE TRAVELLED IN A SPECIAL CRATE WITH 56 POUNDS (ABOUT 25 KILOGRAMS) OF BAMBOO SHOOTS TO KEEP HER HAPPY DURING THE FLIGHT.

    BUT CHI-CHI WILL HAVE TO WAIT ANOTHER 30 DAYS IN QUARANTINE BEFORE BEING INTRODUCED TO AN-AN. THE PANDA PAIR WILL SPEND ABOUT A MONTH TOGETHER AND THEN CHI-CHI WILL RETURN TO LONDON ZOO - IT IS HOPED - A MOTHER TO BE.
