October 2016, China

Country: China

Location: Nanchang Zoo, Jiangxi province

Date: 30 October 2016

Panda: Mei Ling

Details:

An unidentified young man entered the giant panda enclosure at Nanchang Zoo. According to the South China Morning Post, he “jumped over a 1.3-metre-high perimeter fence, then leapt across a three-metre-deep ditch to reach the playground used by giant pandas”.

Mei Ling was alone in the enclosure and was asleep when the man entered. When he awoke, Mei Ling grabbed the man by his leg and wrestled him to the ground. The panda appeared to be merely playing with the intruder, who managed to escape after a few minutes. Even so, witnesses reported that “his trousers had been badly ripped by the animals teeth and claws”. The International Business Times has video of the incident.
