(Newser) – A giant panda bit the left leg of a Hong Kong zookeeper while he was laying bamboo leaves in the animal's pen, reports the AP. The keeper was recovering well after the panda attack, which was partially captured and posted on YouTube by a zoo visitor. The panda—a male whose name, An An, means "peace"—arrived in Hong Kong in 1999 as a gift from the Chinese mainland.
