Justice for Manhandled Pandas

Target: Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding Management

Goal: Justice for pandas allegedly roughed up by zookeepers.

Two zookeepers were reportedly caught on film manhandling two panda cubs at the Chengdu Research Base in China. When the video footage went viral, the men allegedly tried to shift the blame; they claimed to be acting in self-defense after the pandas bit them. The CRB has also defended their employees, leading to accusations of the incident being swept under the rug.

This is an outrage. A breeding facility specifically for pandas is a place where these animals should always be safe and protected; the alleged actions of these zookeepers cannot simply be swept under the rug. Not only must these zookeepers face a penalty for their alleged actions, the CRB must change their rules to ensure this does not happen again.

A species that until very recently has been classified as nearly extinct deserves much better than to be allegedly roughed up by those who are supposed to protect and care for them. Sign this petition to demand the CRB fully address the allegations against the zookeepers and modify their rules to prevent further incidents such as this.


Dear CRB Management,

Two workers at your facility were allegedly caught on film roughly grabbing and shoving two giant panda cubs. Reports claim that you have done nothing to discipline these employees, and people feel that you are sweeping the incident under the rug to protect them and your facility’s reputation.

If the allegations against the workers are true, you must discipline them and monitor their actions to ensure proper conduct towards the pandas in the future. You must also adjust your rules and regulations to ensure that such an incident does not happen again. A facility geared towards the protection and restoration of the panda is a place where pandas should be safe at all times.
