ver the weekend, a little girl found herself trapped in an enclosure with bears. Luckily, they were only panda bears.
Cell phone video footage filmed at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding on Saturday shows three curious giant pandas lumbering toward the small human who was huddled in a dry moat surrounding their enclosure.
At first, a security guard tries to pull the girl up with a pole, but she is unable to hold her weight. Then, with the pandas closing in, the guard frantically reaches down over the enclosure’s wall, grabs hold of her hand, and pulls her up to safety.
The pandas then go back to their natural state of doing nothing.
Still, the rescue was a timely one. Though they may look adorable and harmless, pandas have been known to maul those who try to leap into their pen for a cuddle.
