Kid sounds almost as stupid as the kid at the san francisco zoo that was taunting the tiger, and got his butt killed for his dumb actions. I guess people don't understand that they are in enclosures for a reason??

I'm sorry but this kid is a moron- though apparently many humas have this problem - in the US most bear attacks that occur actually occur with the smaller black bear rather than larger species like the grizzly and the reason is because people tend to want to interact with them more thinking they are "cute" - which they are- but they are still bears and they are not interested in being cuddly for ya!

All the animal is doing, is doing what comes natural. So was the college kid but he should have tried to get a hug from a random woman....ah nevermind that, he got off lucky.

That's what happens when you mix black and white together. The offspring are irrational and violent. Obama!

Does EVERY thread have to eventually lead to politics? How can you even make the connection to Obama from an article about a panda in China?

I was starting to like topix more for the lack of political mud slinging. Come on guys, let's just comment on the actual topic.

Fine, if you want to be a topix nazi! I think the panda was right in maiming the chinese dude and now the panda should be put down.

No.. don't put the panda down! It was just protecting itself, it was probably scared, it could still have some lingering issues, should probably give it a hug....wait, that's what started this in the first place.

Now I'm a nazi for wanting to discuss a panda on a panda thread? Interesting. But no, the panda should not be put down. Instead we should legalize euthanasia for grade A idiots like this guy that thought it was a good idea to cuddle a wild animal and expect it to swoop him up in its loving arms and embrace him like a character in some disturbing anime short.
