You do not throw things at pandas. Ever. You just don’t throw things at pandas unless you’re willing to incur the wrath of a billion angry people. Especially not a baby panda. You’d think this was obvious, but apparently it wasn’t to some particularly ignorant tourists at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in December, 2016. To make matters worse (for them), they were caught on film. Fortunately, when the tourists threw a fig into the panda enclosure, it only landed near the sleeping panda cub, whom they were most likely attempting to wake up. A guard was cited in the Chengdu Business Daily as saying that “often” tourists threw things to try to wake up pandas, including rocks. Amid all the howling outrage online, netizens have pointed out that at present there are no blacklists or rules with any teeth to curb this kind of behavior. - D.D.
