In another example of exactly how dangerous it is to hold wild animals captive, a zookeeper has narrowly escaped from an adult giant panda.
The “near-miss” incident happened at the Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland. Apparently, the staff in question, a female, had been cleaning out the panda enclosure when she suddenly heard movement behind her.
She quickly abandoned her brush and bucket and made a dash for the door making it just in time. The giant panda, named Yang Guang, was fast on her heels but she managed to exit the enclosure
