A Panda baby was born yesterday at Tokyo Ueno zoo. It was a natural childbirth. The baby was born after 24 years in Japan. Japanese people were excited by the good news. The news had a good effect on the economy. The Panda first came to Japan in 1972. Pandas have a high popularity among Japanese people. But the last panda died in Ueno zoo panda and disappeared. Two new pandas came to Japan again in 2011 in Ueno Zoo. The couple had a baby yesterday. But our country rented the panda from China. The rental fee is one hundred million yen. And the baby ownership is for China. I hope the pandas will grow up safe.
Bird flu is spreading everywhere in Japan. Chiba prefecture gave an interview today. Large chickens died so it is concluded that bird flu is positive. It happened in Shimane, Miyazaki, Kagoshima prefectures and recently, Chiba,too These are five examples. It is thought that bird flu came from Indonesia and Southeast Asia and was carried to Japan now. But, bird flu was found in Hokkaido last October. The bird flu is similar to that of Mongolia. Siberia’s bird’s virus were carried by migratory bird to Japan.
Bears appear everywhere this season. Annually they become many. A bear appeared inside the place of a particular junior high school in Yamagata prefecture this morning. The bear attacked the school staff and two of them were injured. And then, the bear was killed by a hunter's gun. The school staff were considered to be the victim but the bear was a victim too. This summer was too hot. So there were no food( acorn) in the mountain. Because of this, bears look for food that is why they appear in villages. I hope we will protect the environment and avoid destruction. Bears' appearances is a warning of nature.
A young mother from Osaka abandoned all of her 2 children. And then the woman’s small children died in Osaka. The two children died of hunger as she left them in their home for more than a month without food in the fridge. This incident happened a week ago. I also learned in the news that the faucet was very far and it would be very hard for the children to reach it. They couldn't drink any water. When I watched the news on TV, I was crying in sorrow. Many people laid them flowers, food, drinks and toys in front of their apartment. But I think it was too late. The children were 1 year and 3 years old. Those children, a boy and a girl were very cute. They were very unfortunate to have a very irresponsible mother. The number of young mothers nowadays is increasing and some of them are childish.
