A reminder that pandas were still being exploited in China as late as 1984, rather than protected. This panda performed as part of the State Circus in Shanghai, riding a rocking horse after initially pushing a pram (with what I think is a toy panda rather than a baby!) (see previous photo in this stream). I think it fair to say that the whole tour group was enthralled with the human performances but shocked at the use of pandas.
