What... the... hell...  What was he thinking?! 

Obviously thinking never entered the equation.

"Yang Yang was so cute and I just wanted to cuddle him. I didn't expect he would attack."  ... Seriously?  You're a college student... take a class in zoology, idiot.

Its very simple guys :) He's of Chinese descent, so the answer is in his DNA. If he were to see a train coming, he would get off the tracks, as logic would dictate. BUT! If the train had been made so the front was a BIG HAPPY CLOUD (:3) then the mind simply registers KAWAII! and normal thinking is pushed aside.

If that had been a black bear, or god forbid a Grizzly, he would have stayed on the other side of the fence and simply watch. But the second his mind registered it was a panda... the KAWAII gene kicks in! :D

Of all the bears, pandas look the most cute and cuddly, but what part of BEAR did he not get? I mean, a few years ago I was within ten feet of a black bear on a darkened road armed with only a flashlight, my wits, and a 55-gallon drum of adrenaline, but I can tell you hugging it at no point entered my mind.

This was almost a Darwin Award.

... Seriously?  You're a college student... take a class in zoology, idiot.

Nothing so grandiose...an entry level course in Completely Obvious 101 should have sufficed.

I had a black bear in my front yard this summer... It didn't occur to me to hug it either.  :P

The fact you're using Japanese words to describe Chinese genealogy scares me. I've never seen a Chinese person go aw how cute, and I showed them pictures of a puppy and kitten trying to get into the same slipper.

Still. The thing goes have teeth that can shred bamboo. Bamboo! I would be worried about hugging it too.

To be fair, I've heard of otherwise normal Caucasians who come across a black bear cub and decide it's the perfect photo-op for little Billy - forgetting in their 'KAWAII!*' state that there's a mama black bear nearby.

Hey maybe I just had some Chinese with starch still in them. *Shrug* but they didn't even crack a smile.

"Kawaii" has been englicized just as much as schadenfreude and uber, I think. :P

Huh, I wouldn't have thought so. I thought the following was still relatively small. Oh well, no skin of my nose.
