5@5: Crouching Tiger, Angry Bird

Nashville, TN, United States / 102.9 The Buzz

Looks like crane style kung-fu can beat tiger style after all.

Onlookers at Fuyang Wildlife Park in Hangzhou, China, were horrified when a strong breeze sent a red-crowned crane that had been flying overhead straight into the tiger enclosure. Since much of the enclosure was covered, leaving little room to fly, the bird seemed doomed when three tigers quickly closed in for the kill.

But Master Crane had other plans.

Using moves that might seem like something straight out of “Kung-Fu Panda,” the crane managed to keep all three cats at bay — and by the end of the standoff, onlookers were cheering the plucky bird and laughing at the tigers.
