Biting a poor drunken man when he only wanted to give you a hug.

Meanie.

He first wanted to shake his hand. He was being polite before getting all personal with the hug. perfectly sensible.

How did the man get into the habitat?
Most animal habitats have fences to keep animals from getting out, not to keep people from getting in. Also not all zoos across the world have the same type of protection. I know in some zoos in Eastern Europe it's not hard to get swiped by a lion.

To be fair, I thought his extended hand was going for my bamboo.

how could someone bite a panda and morally have no regret? I could never, even intoxicated like that fellow, bite such a poor sweet creature. They have enough problems not being able to reproduce to sustain their population numbers (sorry to hear that, SilentPanda :D ), they don't need a fellow biting them..

I would have poked its eyes out.

According to the article, he wasn't actually successful in biting the panda. Too much fur. If that's not a hint for a certain member to shave, I don't know what is :D

Poor Panda

I've been at the Beijing Zoo begin of this year. The picture linked to the yahoo article is most likely not taken at the zoo. You can see the barrier in the background, it's not very high at all. Btw: The Panda cage is by far the best one of all animals in the zoo and, if you like animals, it can be very depressing to go there.
