Baby Panda tries to take a bite out of France’s First Lady

Cute and cuddly? Not this baby panda.

Yuan Meng is a baby panda you don’t want to mess with: just ask Brigitte Macron. France’s First Lady is named ‘godmother’ to the furry little bear, but he doesn’t seem to have any warm feelings towards her. The fiesty fur-ball growled and lunged at Macron during his naming ceremony, an important diplomatic event in the life of a French panda.

His name translates from Chinese to mean ‘Dream Come True’ but, the little bear might more closely relate to ‘Nightmare Come True’. Do you think the French would be open to nickname suggestions?
