This zookeeper apparently wanted to clean up a little panda’s enclosure, but the adorable cub had a different scheme up his sleeve.
His plan: to grab the broom before the keeper could even get started and thus delay cleanup time for fun time.
“Pay attention to meeeeeeeeee!”
If you happen to have the (oh-so-lucky) job of taking care of baby pandas, it might be tough to get anything done in the face of such cuteness. Another video from earlier this year shows a zookeeper struggling to feed medicine to two mischievous pandas. Thus clip shows the cubs repeatedly foiling the keeper’s efforts with their playful antics.
It sure looks like a job-related problem we'd be happy to have.
Pandas are considered an endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Visit the website of the IUCN or the World Wide Fund for Nature to learn more about these incredible animals.
