Glaslyn Chick 2.

We are now in possession of the post mortem report for Chick 2.

The post mortem was carried out by Dr Mark Stidworthy, veterinary pathologist with International Zoo Veterinary Group Pathology.

It states that the cause of Chick 2's death appears to be pneumonia and lung haemorrhage associated with lungworm infestation, together with acute blood loss anaemia. The report also indicated that the middle chick was likely to have been a female.

It has been a very difficult week for us all at Glaslyn and we have really appreciated your overwhelming messages of support. We would also like to take this opportunity to say a big thanks to those of you that have donated towards the costs of the post mortem.

Diolch yn fawr.

Cyw 2 Glaslyn

Rydym wedi derbyn adroddiad post mortem yr ail gyw.

Gwnaed y post mortem gan Dr Mark Stidworthy, milfeddyg patholegol efo International Zoo Veterinary Group Pathology.

Mae'n nodi mai achos posib marwolaeth Cyw 2 oedd niwmonia a gwaedlif yr ysgyfaint sy'n gysylltiedig â phla llyngyr yr ysgyfaint, ynghyd ag anaemia. Mae'r adroddiad hefyd yn awgrymu mai benywaidd oedd y cyw.

Mae wedi bod yn wythnos anodd inni yma yng Nglaslyn ac rydym yn gwerthfawrogi eich holl negeseuon caredig. Hoffem hefyd diolch i'r rhai ohonoch chi sydd wedi cyfrannu tuag at gost y post mortem.

Diolch yn fawr.
