We are very saddened to confirm that today we had to say goodbye to Kiki, the red panda. Kiki was over 19 years old and had several age related health problems that were affecting her quality of life. The incredibly difficult decision to put Kiki to sleep was made between the expert Animal Management team on site in collaboration with the College vet.
Kiki has been a resident at the College for just over eight years and has been a firm favourite with students, staff and visitors during that time. She has played a huge role in the training of many students and she will be deeply missed by us all.
Our other red panda, Ling, although elderly, continues to play an important role in the animal collection at the College.
