Bloody Panda Attack

A lead paragraph that got our attention this morning: “Gu Gu is not your typical soft and cuddly giant panda. For the third time, he's tasted the flesh of an unwitting intruder in his pen at the Beijing Zoo.” This from CNN, which reports that Zhang Jiao, 28, is latest human to run afoul of Gu Gu. Zhang and his son were tossing each other a panda doll that fell into Gu Gu’s pen. Zhang was mauled as he attempted to retrieve the toy. “The panda is a national treasure, and I love and respect [him], so I didn't fight back," Zhang is quoted as saying. "The panda didn't let go until it chewed up my leg and its mouth was dripping with my blood."
