Panda not so cuddly

Pandas don't do anything wrong! They are only adorable and cuddly and lovable and that's all!! Not really!!

1) A Beijing Zoo panda, Gu Gu for the third time on Wednesday Jan 7,2009 attacked a man who jumped into the animal's enclosure to retrieve his son's toy. The panda bit into the man's right leg, and when he was done with that, he bit the left leg. In 2007, the panda attacked a boy, 15, who had jumped into his enclosure, gnawing his legs to the bone. A year earlier he bit a chunk out of the leg of a drunken man who had jumped into the enclosure to "hug" the cuddly animal. VIA

2) On Thursday November 6, 2008 at the Wild Endangered Animal Protection Institute, near Xian in central China a panda latched onto a 15-year-old Melbourne schoolgirl hand and would not let go. Georgia Treu from St Leonard's College, Brighton in Melbourne's east, were at the sanctuary to perform volunteer work, including cleaning cages and preparing food. She was petting it and it licked her hand, which she thought was cute, and then it bit it. VIA

3) March 20, 2008 morning the Smithsonian’s National Zoo's beloved panda cub, Tai Shan (aka Butterstick)injured a zookeeper when he attempted to "play" with the zookeeper he encountered there and accidentally inflicted a small leg laceration with his teeth. VIA

4)A zookeeper, surnamed Zhang, needed more than 100 stitches after a 3-year-old panda, Lan Zai viciously bit and scratched him during feeding time at a zoo in northwestern China Gansu Province on Saturday Aug. 4, 2007. Zhang was feeding the panda from outside the enclosure, sticking his arms through the wire, when the panda, Lan Zai, grabbed his arms and began biting them and then scratched his legs. Last October in 2007, a panda cub bit off part of the thumb of an American visitor who was feeding the animal at a reserve in southwestern China. A month earlier, a drunken Chinese tourist bit a panda at the Beijing Zoo after the animal attacked him when he jumped into the enclosure and tried to hug it.VIA
