Here are some photos by Washington City Paper intern Dan Singer who was on the scene as they bundled the furball up. The site says “Rusty appeared to be in a tree close to a row house’s roof. Rusty was caught in a net before being placed in a crate.”





Washington DC CO Peeps, this is a Red (Panda) Alert. Rusty The Red Panda has been missing from the National Zoo since 6pm last night. From their Twitter feed:

“Red pandas typically spend the warm daytime hours resting, so it’s likely Rusty is somewhere in or near the Zoo hiding in a tree. If you see Rusty, don’t approach him. Stay where you can safely keep an eye on him & alert the Zoo (202.633.4888) immediately. Remember: red pandas are wild animals, & will bite if cornered or scared. Animal care staff have been combing the trees around the Zoo since 8 a.m. He could be sick & hiding, or someone could have taken him.”

Keep an eye on @NationalZoo for the latest, and let’s keep our Panda Paws crossed that Rusty turns up OK.
