Singapore: Animal rights activists in Singapore are continuing their
calls on the government to return two Giant Pandas who arrived in the
country last month and this past week completed their quarantine period.
"We want all animals to not be in captivity and even more so these two
pandas because they are not in their natural habitat," animal rights
campaigner Teresa Cho told Bikyamasr.com on Thursday afternoon as she and
fellow activists were gathering to plan potential demonstrations against the
panda's remaining in Singapore.
Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) on
Thursday announced that the pandas successfully completed the one month
quarantine on October 6 and would not be prepared for public viewing.
