When cute pandas attack.

Apparently, Gu Gu, a 240 pound giant panda in China, has managed to chomp on his third uninvited visitor into his enclosure.

In October, Gu Gu bit a teen intruder. And in 2007, he bit a drunken tourist who jumped into his pen and tried to hug him.


I'm thinking that the Chinese could probably find someplace else where such tourists can find bear-like creatures who would like to cuddle.


Officials at the Beijing Zoo are considering changes to keep visitors away from Gu Gu the panda.

Why bother? Sounds like he's having a great time, and is no worse for wear from it.

I saw this too and passed it along to co-workers under the heading of "The World is Coming Apart."

I see a new topic of the gun forums: What is the Best Handgun for Panda Country?

Pandas need a varied diet too.

I believe the animal handler folks call making animals forage rather than going a trough "enrichment," and it provides exercise in addition to the mental activity of searching.

Seems we have here a prime example of enrichment, the food running all over the compound and all.

Hannibal the Panda:

A zookeeper tried to test me once. I ate his liver with some bamboo sprouts and a stalk of celery.

Dang, Murph beat me to it :-) People really DON'T realize pandas are not cute and cuddley in real life! Same for Kuala Bears, they are nasty little creatures that ONLY want to be left alone.

maybe we should loan them a grizzly ... faster attack speed.

They just need to tell the Panda that the tourists are "land kittens" so they won't eat them.

How about "land swine" and their bacon is cholesterol free.
