NANCHANG, China — Don’t mess with a sleeping giant panda.
That’s what a man quickly learned after jumping into the animal’s enclosure in an east China province zoo, CNN reports.
Security cameras were rolling as the man bombarded Mei Ling’s home and tried to tease the docile creature. The panda woke up and grabbed the man by the leg, before wrestling him to the ground.
Zoo keepers say Mei Ling was just trying to play.
After a struggle, the man eventually freed himself. Authorities have not yet found him, but say it was unlikely that he was seriously hurt.
Zoo officials say Mei Ling received medical checks, but seems to be fine.
