How to beat a ‘panda killer’ with a pingpang sundsval
A woman has been diagnosed with a rare brain tumor and is in critical condition in a Singapore hospital, according to news reports.
Pingpong Sundsvall is the last surviving member of a pair of pandas who were rescued from a zoo in Singapore in 2004 and 2008, and have since been cared for at a Singapore zoo.
It is unclear if she has been the victim of a rare genetic disorder, which can cause tumors to form in the brain, or whether she has received chemotherapy or radiation treatment.
A spokesperson for the Singapore Zoo said they had been contacted by the family and that the hospital was providing care to Ms Sundsval.
The pandas have since returned to China, where they are being cared for in Chengdu Zoo.
Ms Sundsvall is a member of the pair, and the first pandas to be released in China.
The zoo is located in the south-western city of Chengdu, and Ms Sundsal has been staying there since she was eight months old.
She was born on April 8, 2016.
Her brother, who was also born on that date, was rescued in 2004 from a Chinese zoo after the pandas were caught eating a dead pig.
