Fierce fight between wild pandas
Researchers have recently recovered footage of a fierce fight which erupted between two wild pandas in southwest China's Sichuan Province, with locals embarking on a mission to locate the injured panda who came off second best in the duel.

After collecting their carefully positioned infrared cameras on Monday, researchers were surprised to find rare footage had been obtained showing a pair of giant pandas engaged in a violent joust in protected area in Pingwu County, Sichuan's Mianyang City.

The remarkable fight footage showed the two rivals not only wrestling, but also clawing ferociously at each other. The brutal battle lasted for some 17 minutes, finally ending when the defeated bear left the scene with more than just his pride wounded, with the losing panda also sustaining injuries to his face.
Experts believe the dispute is likely to have been centered around a female companion.

"They were likely to be fight over courtship. But there is also another possibility that the male panda wanted to mate but the female panda hasn't ovulated yet. This could cause a fight, but it would not be as serious as it was," said Zhang Hemin, deputy director of China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas.
After watching the video footage, a patrol team formed by a group of local villagers started a mission to track down the injured panda but have yet to come across the bear so far.

"We've collected the footages in all the infrared cameras but haven't found the track of the wounded panda so far," said villager Zhong Junde.

Russian panda gets his own rocket to
mark historic spaceflight
As Russia celebrated the 60th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s historic spaceflight, a panda at the Moscow Zoo had his own “cosmic experience.”

Ru Yi, the panda, had his chance to lift off on a bamboo rocket made especially for him by zoo workers.

The bear-sized rocket, which took several days to construct, held Ru Yi’s attention only momentarily, before the large panda decided to leave space exploration for another day and instead chose to nibble on some bamboo.

Gagarin’s 108-minute flight into space 60 years ago set a new horizon for humanity and overnight turned the farmworker’s son into one of the century’s heroes.

The 27-year-old’s single earth orbit in 1961 was one of the Soviet Union’s most enduring Cold War victories and fueled a space race with the United States.

Pandas get into Winter Olympic
spirit in new painting
Artist Liu Zhong has recently completed his grand painting on pandas in ice and snow sports. The 202.2-meter-long and 1-meter-wide painting illustrates 109 events of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games. The work features more than 5,000 pandas, serving as the "athletes" and "audience".

Liu is well-known for depicting pandas through Chinese paintings and is a member of the board of directors of the China Artists Association. According to him, "Through these lovely pandas, I hope to popularize ice and snow sports, and hope that more people will pay attention to and participate in ice and snow sports."
