December 2016, China

Country: China

Location: Wolong National Nature Reserve

Date: 17 December 2016

Panda: Ximei

Details:

A worker at China’s Wolong National Nature Reserve entered an enclosure to check on a panda cub. The cub’s mother, 16 year-old Ximei, attacked the worker. Wei Hua had been working with giant pandas since 2013, so was aware of the dangers. According to the GB Times:

Wei’s hamstrings, as well as the carpal bones in both of his hands were broken, and nearly a third of his left palm was bitten off.

Xinhua has pictures of the mother and her cub. The one of Wei in recovery is not recommended for sensitive readers.
