Old news in panda attacks by Gu Gu

For some unknown reason, AP republished the story of an October 2007 attack on a teen by Gu Gu, a male panda at the Beijing Zoo. The article is entitled “Panda attacks teeen in zoo enclosure” and is dated 31 March 2009. This isn’t a new attack. Presumably human error or a technical glitch are responsible for this republishing.

A few Australian papers seem to have picked this up (like The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age) and it has made its way onto a few blogs. No other newspapers seem to have reported it, so it may have been an isolated Australian problem.

Poor Gu Gu. Even when he hasn’t attacked anyone for months, he can’t keep the media from ruining his good name…
