A panda is recovering in a breeding center in southwest China after a villager found the animal suffering from suspected malnutrition. The man came across the sick-looking panda crouching in a bush near his home in Hongya county, Sichuan Province, on Thursday. He called a local nature reserve immediately. Rescuers soon arrived and concluded that the panda was starving and had been ill for a few days. They gave it first aid, and it was then sent to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding for further treatment.
