    Animal keepers from the National Zoo captured a red panda in a Washington neighborhood Monday after it went missing from its enclosure at the zoo.

    The male named Rusty was captured in a bush in the Adams Morgan neighborhood on Monday afternoon, said National Zoo spokeswoman Pamela Baker-Masson. The animal was being taken to the zoo's animal hospital for a checkup.

    Poor little guy. Hope the vet gives a clean bill of health and it was all just a grand panda adventure for him. :)

    Vanishing acts: Ed Snowden, red panda
    By Dorrine Mendoza, CNN
    updated 6:45 PM EDT, Mon June 24, 2013

    (CNN) -- What do NSA leaker Edward Snowden and a red panda at the National Zoo in Washington have in common? Absolutely nothing. Except that both mysteriously vanished. And both were the subjects of high-profile searches -- at least for a little while, in the case of the panda.

    But a little while was all Twitter needed to engage in a flurry of jokes, including the creation of several parody accounts for Rusty, the red panda....

    I guess if Daryn Collie had used the furry persona of a red panda instead of a cat/tiger, he might have been found by now as well. As it is...MSM could care less that Daryn's missing and LE, well....
