Panda in China zoo bites student who wanted a hug

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081122/..._bites_student

BEIJING – A college student in southern China was bitten by a panda after he broke into the bear's enclosure hoping to get a hug, state media and a park employee said Saturday.

The student was visiting Qixing Park with classmates on Friday when he jumped the 6.5-foot (2-meter) -high fence around the panda's habitat, said the park employee, who refused to give his name.

The park in Guilin, a popular tourist town in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, houses a small zoo and a panda exhibit. It was virtually deserted when the student scaled the fence surrounding the panda, named Yang Yang, the employee said.

He said the student was bitten in the arms and legs. Two foreign visitors who saw the attack ran to get help from workers at a nearby refreshment stand, who notified park officials, the employee said.

The student was pale as he was taken away by medics but appeared clear-headed, he said.

"Yang Yang was so cute and I just wanted to cuddle him. I didn't expect he would attack," the 20-year-old student, surnamed Liu, said in a local hospital, according to the official Xinhua News Agency.


the stupidity in some people.

Seriously, i saw these red pandas at the zoo in chongking at the end of my yangtze river cruise and they looked super friendly. Then, the zoo handler gave em some bamboo or something and they had a go at it...not so friendly anymore haha.

I held a 8 month old one while on a trip to China. Fur feels like steel wool.

It's too bad that he didn't get mauled like the dumbass who tried to get closer to the polar bear in the Alaskan zoo.

The only reason Pandas eat bamboo is because they're too slow to catch people.
