Read a 1958 story about Chi-Chi-s plight here
There doesn't seem to be any photo or movie documentation of the first leg of Chi Chi's journey to the Moscow Zoo. If anyone know's of anything let me know.
Second leg of Chi Chi's journey Tierpark East Germany
Third leg of Chi Chi's journey Frankfort Zoo
There doesn't seem to be any photo or movie documentation of the fourth leg of Chi Chi's journey to the Copenhagen Zoo. Given Copenhagen Zoo's current "problem's" with trying to rent a panda from China they probably wish they had kept Chi Chi in 1958. If anyone know's of anything, again please let me know.
Fifth and final leg of Chi Chi's journey. London Zoo. Home Sweet Home! Spending time with royalty explaining never to get deposed because seeking political asylum is indeed a suck existence........
Chi Chi never left London Zoo again, with the exception of a return trip to Russia for a dirty weekend(unproductive) with An An in 1966
An An agreed to have another go(again, unproductive) at Chi Chi in 1968 and flew to London to reciprocate her visit two year's earlier.
