A man has been attacked by a panda at a park in southern China, after he climbed into its enclosure hoping to cuddle the creature.
The 20-year-old student had ignored warning signs and scaled a two-metre (6.5ft) barrier to get into the pen.
State media say the panda bit him on his arms and legs, and he had to be rescued by the animal's keepers.
Speaking from his hospital bed, the injured man said the panda had looked so cute he had just wanted to hug it.
"Yang Yang was so cute and I just wanted to cuddle him," he told Xinhua from his hospital bed.
"I didn't expect he would attack... I don't remember how many bites I got."
People should really learn that animals are not teddy bears.
