First footage of panda cub born at Dutch zoo

Little shrieks of excitement highlighted the first video appearance by the tiny cub of a giant panda at a Dutch zoo on Tuesday, a sure sign it stood a solid chance of survival. Ouwehands Zoo, where the cub was born on May 1, distributed the first pictures and video from the maternity den where mother Wu Wen cuddled, embraced and fed the fast-growing cub. The release of the visuals coincided with the end of the critical first days when many cubs die.
