Jack Black's plan to snuggle with panda ends after vet warning

Comedian and actor Jack Black recently told Jay Leno that when he had the opportunity to meet a baby panda, the veterinarian’s warnings had him very nervous.

With Kung Fu Panda 2 coming out on May 26th, Black was "psyched" to snuggle with the baby panda… Until the vet cautioned, "You're not going to snuggle this panda. Do you see this scar? They have claws, very sharp claws. They're bears!"

"I was so scared after her bear story that, instead of it being this cool promotional opportunity, it turned into this thing where 'Jack Black is a coward,'" the 41-year-old funny man told Leno.
