The underground panda den is 2 meters deep; there were three pandas in the area. The security staff reached out to the girl with a long bamboo pole, but the girl failed at holding onto it at the first try. With pandas approaching, the staff then reached out through the fence and grabbed the girl by her hands, eventually pulling her out of the enclosure.

Witnesses said the girl accidentally fell when her parents let her stand on the wall to see the pandas.

The girl was unharmed and the incident did not startle pandas, the zoo confirmed.

Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding has become a very popular visiting site during the Spring Festival. The number of real-time visitors in the park has exceeded 30,000.

I was there years ago sitting right next to a full-grown giant panda.

While the panda might look like a bear, you've nothing to fear under normal circumstances.

In my case, I held onto the upper back of the giant panda while allowing photos to be taken.

I do remember touching the upper back area of the panda and was amazed to find that, despite the furry look of the animal its back was as hard as a rock.

Next time you visit the Research Center, just try to do the same as I did and see if you'd disagree.

The wall is on the outside of the safety fence looking at the video, so her parents ignored the safety rules. Had anything happened to her, they would have blamed the zoo...

There is a fence, that means the parents lift her over to stand on the wall, if so the parents must be totally retarded.

Maybe pandas are not as territorial as tigers, lions, so the girl could escape unscathed.

The panda looks cute, but in fact it belongs to the beast, yes, adult pandas are as dangerous as brown bears.
