Oh, our little Butterstick is all grown up now. He was packed in a special carrier this morning along with 200lbs of bamboo, pears, sweet potatoes and other treats, and packaged off to China on a special Fedex plane. Tai Shan is headed to a panda breeding center, where he will work with other pandas to repopulate their endangered species.
We’ll miss you, fuzzy guy. You always brightened our day.
