Another animal encounter!

Okay, according to the news Zhang Xinyan, a construction worker, drank four pints of beer and then climbed into the cage of Gu Gu, a seven-year-old panda, at Beijing Zoo. He then attempted to hug Gu Gu and was rewarded with a bite on the leg. He responded with equal force but failed to get his teeth through the panda's thick fur. A zoo worker used a hose to seperate the pair with jets of water. Zhang claimed to have seen panda's being hugged on TV. He will be off work for a month recovering from his injuries and Gu Gu is off his food.

Cool! I read this last night in the Metro and you've already illustrated it. How up to date are you? ;-)
