The panda is seen rolling in the snow and clawing at the snowman before ripping its head off. Da Mao then tumbles to the ground, snowman head in tow, before eventually climbing up and sprawling atop what’s left of the snowman.

The bear is one of two pandas from China that arrived in Toronto in 2013 for a 10-year stay, according to the zoo. 

Both Da Mao and his partner, Er Shun, will remain at the Toronto Zoo until the spring of 2018, when the pair will move to the Calgary Zoo.

The giant pandas have become a favorite sight for visitors, the zoo said.
