Desperate Search for Red Panda Missing From Virginia Zoo
(CBS News) NORFOLK, Va. -- A frantic search at the Virginia zoo for a red panda last seen when the zoo was closing on Monday, reports CBS Norfolk affiliate WTKR-TV.
Zookeepers werenâ€™t able to find her when they checked on the red panda habitat Tuesday morning.
They hope sheâ€™s somewhere inside the zoo -- but theyâ€™re warning neighbors to avoid Sunny, if they encounter her.
Neighbors told WTKR theyâ€™re heeding that advice. â€œThe pandaâ€™s probably scared himself, this is new to him, so we donâ€™t know how heâ€™ll react,â€ said Lazara Jorrin.
Norfolk police are helping with the search for Sunny, using a thermal camera.
