Physical harassment panda

Unlike koalas, pandas are actually bears (Family Ursidae) – which mean they are equipped with sharp teeth and claws (but so are koalas, so I’m not sure where I’m going with this…)

Anyway, some poor guy breaks into a panda enclosure for a “cuddle”. The bear bit him several times and was sent to hospital.

Panda’s obviously aren’t going to be the mascot for the next “Free Hugs” campaign.

Not the same attack, but shows you that a panda doesn’t need to know kung fu to beat you up:

That must be one awesome jacket

Also who lets people get that close to the cages ?

Must be a new form of population control & cuts down on the zoo’s food budget as well.
