TORONTO, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- A giant panda at the Toronto Zoo decided to take on a snowman in a wrestling match -- but the winner of the encounter is debatable.

The zoo posted a video to YouTube showing what happened when zookeepers built a snowman for a giant panda named Da Mao.

The panda scratches and climbs on the snowy intruder, and manages to briefly perch on the snowman's head before taking a tumble -- followed closely by the head, which lands on the panda, knocking him onto his back.

The tenacious panda continues to wrestle with the base of the snowman, but it appears the large ball of snow might be too much for the bear to handle.

"Toronto Zoo Keepers made giant panda Da Mao a snowman for enrichment!" the video's description reads. "Watch as he plays with, or rather disassembles, their creation."
