Beijing - A camera at a Chinese nature reserve has spied a wild panda eating meat.

Pandas spend most of their days eating bamboo.

Staff at the Wanglong Nature Reserve in southwest Sichuan province set up the camera after noticing dead animals with chew marks. It was not known if the panda had killed the animals.

The Pingwu County forestry bureau says the panda appears to be healthy and strong.

Conservation group WWF says only about 1% of a panda's diet is meat or plants that aren't bamboo.
