NOOOOOO!!!!!! Who would eat such a GAWRGEOUS and BEAUTIFUL creature?!!!?
Chinese scientist Wei Guangbiao hypothesizes that ancient pandas used to be a LOT smaller than their big balls of fun they are today.
And prehistoric man used to snack on them!
Fossils of wild prehistoric pandas were found with slash marks, which were believed to be caused by man.
The scientists also believe that humans didn't kill animals that were deemed "useless," further adding to the theory of panda-eating men.
