We’re all about zoo animal escapades, like our post about Snowbank, the peacock who escaped a Boston zoo. Here’s another almost unbelievable one, given the notorious clumsiness of pandas. That they’re even considered a bear is laughable. Somehow, a remarkably athletic panda escaped his enclosure at a zoo in Copenhagen, becoming our favorite news story this week. Xing Er shares a habitat with a female companion, Mao Sun. Surveillance video shows him climbing a metal pole, covered in electrical wire, and escaping to wander about the zoo.
