Giant panda spotted in trees above city streets

Posted: Updated:
CHINA - A giant panda wandered into a city in China.  One man heard a dog barking loudly while he was sleeping; he went outside and saw the giant panda up in a slim tree.

Fearing the panda may fall and hurt itself, the man and other neighbors quickly called for help.  Forest officials and firefighters quickly arrived to help make sure the panda got down safely.

They decided to set up a protective net under the tree in case the panda fell from the tree.

The panda noticed all the commotion and quickly climbed down by itself to safety and disappeared into the woods.
