A 20 year old man climbed over a 2 meter fence to enter the panda’s enclosure. The BBC reports:

Liu, who is studying at a university in Guilin, said he had been visiting the park with fellow students.

“Yang Yang was so cute and I just wanted to cuddle him,” he told Xinhua from his hospital bed.

“I didn’t expect he would attack… I don’t remember how many bites I got.”

Yang Yang – whose name means sun – is seven years old and weighs 80kg (176lb). Keepers said he had recovered from the incident and was eating and playing as normal.
