As the world prepares for Tian Tian to give birth at Edinburgh Zoo, the BBC broadcaster Chris Packham says pandas should be left to die in their natural habitat.

“Pandas in the wild are a terrible waste of money,” the presenter of Springwatch tells Mandrake. “It’s ridiculous, but these pandas in Edinburgh are fantastic ambassadors for keeping the zoo industry going, even if their species should be left to die out.”

As much as I dislike the man, and as much as I hate to say it....I think he has a point. I also believe that if humans continue to destroy wild habitats as fast as they are now, the same decision will have to be made for other species too.

"Gæð a wyrd swa hio scel, ac gecnáwan þín gefá!": "Fate goes ever as she shall, but know thine enemy!".
I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

I'd rather let people die out than animals. People are horrible anyway.

you and everyone you know and everyone on this forum is people. thanks

I wouldn't expect a comment like that from him, he's normally so pro animal.

I have a far more productive idea! Lets let idiots die out!

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.
