2016 isn’t finished taking from us yet, and this one, I’m sad to say, is a biggie.
Pan Pan, the oldest male panda in the world who quite literally fucked his species out of endangerment, has died. He fathered or grandfathered 25% of all living pandas in captivity.
Pan Pan was a hero known for his lovable nature, his gentle demeanor, his jovial playfulness, and of course for all the fucking he did.
Pan Pan, the oldest male panda in the world, died early in the morning on Wednesday in China’s Sichuan province.
During his life, Pan Pan fathered more than 130 children and grandchildren, according to Chinese state media, making 25% of all pandas in captivity his descendents.
Keepers fondly remembered his “energy and vitality” in the 1990s, during which he fathered the first ever panda cub to survive in a captive breeding environment.
Sometimes there’s no more fucking to do, so you roll over and die. RIP Pan Pan. Gone but not forgotten..
