Chengdu giant panda base sees crowds for public holiday

Chengdu’s Research Giant Panda breeding center was overwhelmed with huge crowds of people during the week-long National Day holiday as photos showing the crowds went viral after being released.

Chengdu’s public security bureau’s weibo account showed photos of cops trying to control the crowds, who were squashed together to enter the Panda base, and attached the words, “Is this a Giant Panda base or a human base?”

Photos showed visitors lined up along a long wall trying to see the pandas. However, it seems like the Giant Pandas didn’t care about the enthusiastic visitors. According to the photos shared by visitors on-site, a cute panda was sleeping and just turned its back to the visitors.
