Panda attacks on rise:
HONG KONG - A giant panda named Peace bit a park keeper's left leg while he was laying bamboo leaves in the animal's pen at a Hong Kong amusement park, officials said Tuesday.
Although pandas look cute and cuddly, they are wild animals that can be violent when provoked or startled.
Since domesticated animals can be violent when provoked or startled, this is hardly probative. Now, if they get to the level of chimp attacks, we should be concerned.
