A panda bear pounced on a man who broke into its enclosure in a Chinese zoo, and wrestling him to the ground.

The cheeky intruder was apparently trying to impress his female friends at the zoo in Nanching City.

Panda one, human nil.

He walked over to the sleeping black and white bear and tried to get its attention.

When it didn’t respond he patted it on the head.

Then it did respond – by delivering beat down worthy of Kung Fu Panda.

The panda took a tight grip around the man’s leg as he tried to escape, knocking him to the ground.

After a struggle that lasted about five minutes, the intruder finally broke free and fled from the enclosure unharmed.
