CHENGDU, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- A giant panda, released into the wild four years ago, was reported as healthy by the forestry department in southwest China's Sichuan Province on Friday.
The female panda, named Zhang Xiang, was caught Thursday in Yuerping, Sichuan by staff from Liziping and Yele nature reserves.
