Or any other bear for that matter. In China a college student climbed over a two meter fence and into a Panda pen at a park for a hug. Then he was surprised as the bear bit him in the arms and legs. Park officials said, that it is common knowledge not to cross a street with busy traffic just as it should be common knowledge not to try and get hugs from wild animals. The fence is there for a reason, dumb-ass.
I mean, this guy is a moron (even if he is a college student). I don’t care how cute and cuddly Pandas look, they are still big ass wild animals with big ass teeth, and like any big ass wild animal with big ass teeth they will bite you if you mess with them. I mean seriously, would this dude try to hug a tiger because it looked cute and cuddly? Hell no because he knows that the tiger would try to eat him, just as he should have known the panda would be none too happy to have him rush at it and try to hug it. I mean, if something coming at you with arms out isn’t a threatening sign (that is if you don’t understand what it means–which the panda obviously couldn’t) I don’t know what it.
It amazes me how stupid people can be at times. It shouldn’t, but it does anyway.
