Captured on an infrared camera in the Laohegou forest area, the panda appears   to find a dead wildebeest in a gulley and gnaws on its bones for two hours.
Pandas are typically known to eat only bamboo shoots, but according to Chen   Youping, deputy director of Forestry Department of Pingwu County, it is not   unknown for the beasts to eat meat.

"The reason why pandas eat meat is because it used to eat meat millions   of years ago," he said.

"Now they mainly eat bamboos, but we occasionally see bones of dead animals in   pandas' excrement during our years of field work," he added.

It is the first time a panda eating meat has been clearly seen, according to   local workers in the forest area.

They hunt and eat the animals they kill, don't they?
If they eat the body of an already dead animal, will they get intestine and stomach problems?

I have been known to eat vegetables before but nobody has yet to document that.

Z2 brought blood two times in a row doing that.
The third time I told her to be extra careful this time.
Oh sure, she can laugh! {:soso_e126:}
