Parker the Panda

Chase Housh

Parker was a 4-year-old red panda (an endangered species) who sadly passed away Sunday morning of March 8th. Veterinarians are still trying to figure out the cause of his death, this event is very odd because there were no bruises found on his body, and red pandas live for about 23 years. Parker was a loved resident at Birmingham Zoo and was born and lived all four years at the zoo. Parker was one of two red pandas at Birmingham Zoo and was one of their most famous animals and most of the kids’ favorite.
