A giant panda was caught on video roaming in a south-west China town in the wee hours of 5 March.

The surveillance footage showed the panda roaming in an empty street of Yingxiu Town, Sichuan Province, at around 2.15am on 5 March.

The panda can be seen getting in and out of green belts several times and wandering around the roadside. Until 2.20am, the panda disappeared from the video.

Judging from the video, experts say the panda is about two years old and seems very healthy.

They're making a further investigation by the video and markings left by the panda to judge where it came from and why it appeared in the street at night.
