Another outbreak in Shaanxi province caused the dea

aths of five pandas between December 2014 and April 2015.

Pandas are docile but can be fierce. In 2005, a female photographer from Hong Kong jumped into a pand

a enclosure to take photos. To the surprise of onlookers, the panda slashed one of her arms, causing profuse bleeding, the center said.

Zhou Mengqi, a veteran photographer in Chengdu, was chased by a panda that had been eating quietly unt

il he took pictures of the animal up close at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in the early 1990s.

“Its claw touched my shoes before I escaped through a door,” he said.

China has a total of 548 captive pandas. Of those, 285 are in the China Conser

vation and Research Center for the Giant Panda and 196 live at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.
