Chiang Mai Zoo announced on Tuesday (Oct. 9) the cause of death of its resident giant panda Chuang Chuang, who died aged 19 back on September 16.

The zoo officials said that China Wildlife Conservation Association had sent experts to Thailand to investigate the cause of death. “The Chinese experts found no sign of malnutrition, external wounds, or foreign objects in the trachea,” said the officials. “They ruled that the panda died of heart failure.”

Thailand will have to pay US$500,000 to the Chinese government for the death of Chuang Chuang in line with the agreement between the Zoological Park Organization and the China Wildlife Conservation Association, and would continue to take good care of Lin Hui, another panda from China, the officials said.

The Zoological Park Organization has made insurance on the giant panda and is ready to pay for the damages.
