WAKAYAMA (Kyodo) The giant panda Meimei, who gave birth to 10 cubs in China and Japan, has died, officials at Adventure World in Shirahama, Wakayama Prefecture, said Wednesday.
Meimei died at age 14, which is about 50 years in human terms. She had eight cubs in Japan after giving birth to two in China. Rauhin, which gave birth to twin cubs at the park in September, is one of Meimei's offspring.
Meimei suffered health problems last winter. She recovered but lost her appetite this month and did not move around much.
