EDITORIAL: Taipei swallowing panda propaganda

Instead of putting all their attention on the pandas, the city government and the zoo should look to Kumamoto Prefecture’s example. If a region in Japan can make a mascot into a national sensation, why can Taipei not promote the Formosan black bear and raise public awareness about its plight?

Animal protection and conservation are of great significance, and it is the responsibility of the city government and the zoo not to sacrifice the rights and welfare of other animals amid panda fever.
