Experts believe Edinburgh giant panda lost cub

Experts at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland believe giant panda Tian Tian "conceived and carried a foetus until late term, but then lost it".

We are all saddened by this turn ofevents after so many weeks of waiting.

Timings are difficult to pinpoint atthis moment, but we had a meeting this morning where Tian Tian’s behaviour and hormone results were reviewed and have come to the conclusion that it is very likely she has lost the pregnancy.

– Chris West, Chief Executive Officer for the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland
