Researchers Wearing Panda Costumes While Interacting With Baby Pandas Will Terrify You [VIDEO]

Researchers at the Wolong Panda Reserve in China don panda costumes when they interact with the youngest bears on the campus as a way of preparing the cubs for their eventual release into the wild.

While panda experts say that the bears’ keen sense of smell lets them know there is something not quite right about their costumed friends, they add that the technique may well be an effective way of preventing the cubs from becoming too dependent on humans.

ABC News’s David Wright got himself a panda suit and visited the reserve. Check out his report below.
