(ECNS) -- Two giant pandas, Da Mao and Er Shun from China, will bid farewell to Canadians early due to bamboo shortage.
The novel coronavirus outbreak has drastically reduced international flights and disrupted bamboo supply chains.
The pair arrived in Canada in March 2013 and was scheduled to live there until 2023.
They were sent to the Calgary Zoo in March 2018 after spending 5 years at the Toronto Zoo.
They will return to China nearly three years ahead of the schedule.
