Feel-Good Friday: How do you cheer up a sad panda? Build her an amusement park!

 
Sijia is a sad panda. Her panda bear bestie was taken to another zoo, leaving Sijia all alone at the Yunnan Safari Park. Over time, she became noticeably depressed.

To lift the panda’s spirits, the zookeepers built an amusement park. Sure, there aren’t any ferris wheels or loop-de-loop roller coasters. But they did hook up her pen with a playground, parallel bars and—best of all—a plasma-screen TV.

No, she’s not binge-watching Pretty Little Liars like some of us (guilty!). They installed a cam to other panda zoo habitats so that she won’t feel quite so lonely. They also included a life-size panda in her enclosure.

All this playtime perked the panda right up. The zoo plans to introduce a new panda into Sijia’s enclosure soon. Maybe now they can spring for that roller coaster.
