KUNMING CITY, China, April 15 (UPI) -- Yunnan Safari Park built an amusement park for a giant panda who became depressed after her companion panda was moved to another zoo.

Sijia became very lonely and sad after her friend was sent back to Shichuan so the zoo cheered her up with an amusement park containing a swing, parallel bars, and a television where she can watch other pandas. The zoo says her spirits have lifted and they hope they can introduce her to another panda so she can have a companion in her new home.
