On Thursday, a man jumped into a giant panda house in Nanchang Zoo, Jiangxi Province. The casual visitor was seen teasing a panda who was asleep. However, the man’s act turned into a “wrestling encounter” with the panda.
Surveillance camera shows the man grappling with the 12-year-old male panda, Meiling, for five minutes before escaping the scene. Local authority has reminded visitors that although giant pandas look cute, they can be very aggressive. In the process of pandas’ daily feeding, keepers and the giant pandas are completely isolated so they don’t attack.
The video has gone viral on Chinese social media platforms and many netizens said the man should be punished for acting inappropriately.
