A man was seriously injured after jumping into a panda pen . . . because he wanted a hug. I could have warned him of this folly. I once tried to get a hug from Pandy, and she kicked my ass!
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.
He said the student was bitten on 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 clearheaded, he said.
And what example of idiocy would be complete without a quote from the moron who started it all?
“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. (H/T - CNN)
He didn’t expect a wild panda would attack. I’m sorry, but maybe Mr. Lu should have jumped into the jackass pen. He would have fit right in.
