Thank you Lillie Dallas and Ruth for the lovely posts and pics.

I am swamped with this summer class - but hope to get back to the site like I was before.

Good news.  Rusty has been found in a bush in the neighborhood and is none the worse for wear.

Comment by Lillie on June 24, 2013 at 2:25pm

Have you seen Rusty?

"Washintom, DC. Crews have been looking for the almost year-old red panda since 8 a.m. Monday, said Pamela Baker-Masson, a communications director at the zoo. He was last seen at 6 p.m. Sunday.
Baker-Masson said they are still unsure how Rusty got out, but have three possible scenarios as to what might have happened to him.
“Rusty is either well, but hunkered down, sick or deceased, or taken by a visitor,” she said."
