A man attempting to impress two women was wrestled to the ground by a Giant panda bear at a China zoo.

After scaling the 4-foot barrier and jumping over a 9-foot ditch, the man entered the panda bear's enclosure, waking the sleeping giant.

But the challenger was no match for the 265 pound bear. The panda grabbed the man's leg and easily pushed him to the ground.

After struggling for five minutes, the man broke free.

Local media identified the bear's challenger as Mr. Chen who was a tourist at the park.

The zoo's manager says the 12-year-old male panda named Mei Ling, only wanted to play with the intruder.

Both the bear and tourist are said to be uninjured.
