You may recall that on September 9th 2010 the Giant Panda Long Long at Kobe City Japan died.

Experts flew from Sichuan to Kobe Zoo to examine his body to find the cause of death. It appears that whilst the experts from Kobe Zoo where extracting semen from Long Long, he was sick which stuck in his throat and caused him to choke and die.

Kobe City is expected to pay compensation to China for the death of Long Long in the region of $500,000.
