Workers at a nature preserve in China had to use some unusual tactics to catch a giant panda named "Tao Tao."

It was born in captivity two years ago, but it's now ready to go into the wild. To get it there, workers had to put on panda costumes and use plenty of bamboo to lure Tao Tao into a cage. But that's not all.

To gain Tao Tao's trust, they also had to smear panda urine and feces on their clothes. It's all done to ensure its survival by limiting its exposure to humans.
