May 2011, China

Country: China

Location: Wuhan Zoo, Hubei

Date: 2 May 2011

Panda: Hope

Details:

Hope, a five year-old male panda in Wuhan Zoo, chased and killed a peacock that had strayed into its enclosure. Although peacocks often entered the panda area from their neighbouring enclosure, this is the first time that one had been killed. The Telegraph reported:

Chen Jun, zoo keeper, said: “In spite of the general impression of being docile, panda is after all an animal. As an omnivorous animal though, giant panda sometimes eats meat.

“As you can see at the video, the panda reacted quite fast and ran at a surprising speed.”
