Mischievous Baby Panda Refuses To Let Keeper Complete Her Duties

When you’re taking care of a toddler, it can be hard to get anything done. So, when a woman in Chengdu, China tried to sweep up leaves while minding a baby panda, she found the task almost impossible to accomplish because the young animal was behaving like a child.

A woman who works at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding found herself struggling to do a simple task. She was trying to gather leaves and put them in a wicker basket. In the video below, you can see the panda caretaker lift Meng Lan up and carry the panda to another area so she can get her work done. Her hands are under the baby panda’s arms, and its dangling legs are swaying from side to side as she carries it away, the video below amply demonstrates.

The woman releases the baby animal, and it quickly turns around and starts walking back to her. She tries to sweep with one hand and hold the panda bear still with her other hand, but since that wasn’t working, she lifts the panda up off the ground again and carries it away upside down. The panda comes bouncing back again and attempts to climb in the basket of leaves.


The woman carries it away once more and places it on the grass. This time the panda decides to climb a tree. When it comes down, it approaches the woman and starts playing with a metal leaf scoop.

You hear the woman scream, “Hey, hey, hey,” and you see her try to get the leaf scoop back. She tries to work around the little rascal as it attempts to climb into the basket once again. Like before, the panda is carried away like a rag doll, but seconds later, it’s there beside the caretaker again. The woman carries it away one last time, and one last time the little panda bear returns and sees that all the leaves are gone.

The people at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding work hard to foster the panda population. Pandas are precious to the people in China, and the people there want to save them from extinction.
