Copenhagen Zoo's CCTV caught the video of Xing Er, a seven-year-old giant panda, walking in the garden area after escaping from his new panda house. The video showed the panda climbing up a metal pole then finding his way around three electrical wires before he crawled out into open land and was seen by a door keeper.
Xing Er, who had escaped from his house before when the zoo was not open, was soon caught by workers and controlled with a tranquilizer dart(麻醉镖), yet the workers said he was not harmed. Bengt Holst, the zoo's spokesman, said that they will make changes to safety to make sure that the panda will not escape.
The Panda House is also home to Mao Sun, a female giant panda. Xing Er and Mao Sun were both gifts to Queen Margrethe after her visit to China in 2014. Their $27 million panda house looks like the yin-yang symbol.
Beijing lends out pandas for 15 years to other countries as a sign of friendship, and baby pandas born during this period belong to China. The Copenhagen Zoo was ready to reopen to the public but was able to open late with new government regulations.
