  • Description

    Despite the tentative announcement last week of the engagement of Chi Chi, London Zoo's giant panda to a Russian called An-An, Chi-Chi is still alone except for the attentions of her keeper. But she's accepted the predicament as philosophically as any panda can and won't be turned off her food, engagement or no.

    An while she waits for her fiance's parental consent Chi-Chi is most concerned with her personal freshness, and after a good hosing down, she's off on her morning run.

    And looking after Chi-Chi's overseas investment is London Zoo's Curator of Mammals, Doctor Desmond Morris, who today flew to Moscow to arrange a wedding date. The results of his talks won't be known until he's reported back to London Zoo but gossip has it that the great panda predicament will be over by spring.
