Red Panda Zoo Report_Hass.jpg

Rusty the red panda escaped from its enclosure at the zoo in Washington in June 2013 and was later found in a nearby neighborhood. The National Zoo has been inspecting vegetation around all of its exhibits to ensure animal enclosures are secure. According to a zoo report on the escape that The Associated Press obtained following a public records request, the zoo has been investigating and observing the red panda named Rusty ever since he was found in a nearby neighborhood.
