How to Throw a Panda Shot – Watch Masterclass from Moscow Zoo’s Ru Yi

Russian Federation, Moscow
November 12, 2019 at 12:30 GMT +00:00 · Published

Ru Yi, one of Moscow Zoo’s two giant pandas, showed how to beat the November blues by giving a boxing and wrestling masterclass on Tuesday.

The pawsome mammal threw punches at the bag and wrestled a cone, proving that nothing can dampen his mood and make him feel sluggish.

Moscow Zoo’s press office said that regardless of the season and the gloomy, wet and windy weather the pandas are “vigorous, full of inexhaustible enthusiasm in their games and ready to fervently crunch bamboo for hours on end.”

China handed over two young pandas to Russia during President Vladimir Putin's April visit to Beijing. The pandas are set to spend the next 15 years in Moscow as part of a scientific programme aiming to study ways of preserving the species along with the possibility of returning them to the wild.
