This
adorable pair may become pawndas if the trade war with China
escalates. Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, two giant pandas, have been
living happily at the Washington, D.C. National Zoo for years. The
bears are technically owned by the Chinese government and in the
capital as part of a longterm lease — which expires in 2020. “We’ve
had 47 incredibly successful years of partnering with our Chinese
colleagues, China Wildlife and Conservation Association, and our
current agreement is through Dec. 7, 2020,” a zoo spokesperson told
The Hill, projecting confidence that a new agreement to keep the
animals could be reached. “Our giant panda conservation program is
all based on science plans that both our scientists and their Chinese
counterparts create and implement together.”
