I just made a post, but I felt the need to make another quickly concerning a baby red panda named Rusty who has gone missing from the National Zoo in Washington DC. According to the authorities at the zoo, he is most likely sleeping a tree somewhere in or near the zoo, because that’s what red pandas like to do when it’s warm (which, by the way, is very cute). They also say that if you do spot him, you shouldn’t try to catch him, but to instead call this number – 202.633.488 – to let them know so they can come and get him safely and bring him home to his family. If you’re in the Washington D.C. area, be on the lookout for this adorable guy.
UPDATE: Rusty has been found and returned. You can see a photo of him getting a checkup to see if he caught anything while he was out here. Welcome home, Rusty.
