Those of you who know me, know that one of my dreams in life is to go to the Wolong National Nature Reserve in China’s Sichuan province and hold a baby panda.

I like to think I could do a better job than CNN’s John Vause. His struggling in this video cracks me up.

But as the video title suggests, pandas are cute but not cuddly. Especially those who were not raised by humans. This man learned the hard way when he jumped into the panda’s pen at the Beijing zoo, trying to retrieve his son’s toy. In November a panda attacked a college student who claims he just wanted to hug the panda.

On second thought, maybe it’s safer just to look at pictures and videos of the cute but not cuddly bears…

  1. As any other animal, they would defend their territory, that’s why is would be safer to hug them, when the keeper is nearby.
    The panda cub in the video is very active 🙂

  2. i was there i was there in wolong!! haha too bad that panda did not make the pathetic panda sound while it was trying to get out. that would have been pawsome. you know the panda that attacked the man getting his son’s toy was the same panda who attacked that man who just wanted to hug it. hmm i wonder if gorillas attack people too?
