Actual News Item in Todays Hindu

Opening up a Pandara’s Box

 A drunk tourist fell into the enclosure of the giant panda, Gu Gu,  at Beijing Zoo. The panda then bit him. Then the inebriated tourist bit the panda back. The news item  doesn’t say what happened to the tourist, but the photograph shows an attendant watching the Panda. I am having a hard time typing this with a straight face. I am wondering…where did the guy find a place on the panda to bite?

Also, tangentially…how do they select names for these pandas?
