Scotland - (Pandering To Them): Panda Diplomacy took a new twist today with the donation to Edinburgh Zoo of 'two breeding Chinese males' dressed in fluffy panda suits.

The outfits are identical to those worn by keepers in Shendong Panda Reserve's rehoming program that reintroduces young cubs to the wild for the first time.

The disguises apparently make the young bears adapt more easily to their new habitats and are manufactured from 100% washable nylon.

Commenting on today's gift by the Spoof Chinese Wildlife Conservation Association Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond said "WTF?"

The gift of bears was witnessed by Deputy Prime Monster Nick Clegg and Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang.

Tian Tian and Yangguang, a breeding pair of males, will be under the custodianship of the Scottish Zoological Ass-Ossiation.

A government spokesman said today that 'the project represents the culmination of five years of political and diplomatic negotiation at the highest levels.'

Any offspring from the breeding pair are thought to be extremely unlikely.
