Pandas are one of the main symbols of China, they represent friendship and peace. and are known for their gentle temperament – but that didn’t stop two tourists from throwing rocks at a giant panda in the Beijing Zoo. Another visitor caught the incident on film and said the pair were trying to ‘wake up’ the large animal.
The panda, nicknamed Meng Da, already appeared to be awake and lazily going about its business, but that didn’t stop the two from trying to get a rise out of the animal. The video was posted to China’s version of Twitter, Weibo, where it drew more than 100 million hits.
