(CBS) - The plan was simple. One guy distract the guard, the rest make a break for the exit. Almost too easy.
Did I mention we're talking about pandas?
Pandas are usually slow to act (and even slower to mate.) But sometimes an opportunity is too good to pass up. There's no mention of how the escape attempt ends, but chances are the pandas didn't make an epic "Homeward Bound" type journey home.
What we can say, however, is that with only around 1,600 pandas in the world, maybe spring for nicer pens? Just saying.
