It was a normal day at the Murayama Zoo in Sapporo. Baby red pandas are frolicking in their pen, and it looks like nothing can go wrong. Then a traumatic experience begins as Gin the red panda suffers from a shock that was caused by an intruder that was entering his home.
In all seriousness, Gin was just overreacting to the caretaker entering his place to check on his food supply. In fact, the little guy is okay, it's just that he reacted in a way that was rather silly and adorable. And judging from the video, I think that it was the sudden footstep from behind that got to him.
Whether my theory is true or not will depend on the next visit from the scary caretaker. I hope that the experience doesn't affect Gin's development into adulthood, but there's a chance that he will be okay. If anything, he has the full support of the other red pandas that live with him.
