Zoo Boise red panda cub dies following infection
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) —
A red panda cub named Whiskers passed away at Zoo Boise.
The zoo says the red panda had stunted growth and was smaller than his brother. They also said he had a weakened immune system and it made him more prone to infections.
Whiskers became lethargic and received intensive veterinary care. He did not survive because he had a bacterial infection.
