Those cute, cuddly pandas aren't so cuddly after all.

Officials at the San Diego Zoo report a giant panda has bitten a caretaker.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the female panda was wandering out of her habitat.

The zoo worker was treated at a hospital. Zoo officials say a safety barrier wasn't properly secured.

The worker was bitten as the panda was being herded back to her living quarters.

The zoo was closed at the time.
