    The moocher panda? It’s fascinating how far them neolibs are willing to take their propaganda..
    TMG, I could’ve guessed.

    Might it rather be the transport to a new room, plus of the additional around the clock observation and such have caused stress levels high enough to cause an abortion?
    Known to happen in pandas.

    Good for Foster Farms. 🙂

    But when I lived in Japan I used to eat tori-sashi. If that sounds like sashimi to you, you’re right. Tori-sashi is raw chicken breast. When I got back to the US I asked some Japanese chefs if they could make tori-sashi for me. They said, “Not with American chickens!” 😦
