Giant panda eating garbage? Zoo says will investigate

Photos of a giant panda eating garbage at a zoo in north China’s Shanxi Province went viral on China’s social media.

The pictures were taken on Tuesday, the fifth day of China’s week-long National Day holiday.

On the second day, the zoo’s managers posted a notice online, saying it will take stricter measures to ensure the bears are properly protected, and that the negligence was caused partly by the unexpectedly large crowds of visitors.

Daily tourist numbers reached 15,000 at the zoo during the National Day holiday, which ends on Friday.
