A red panda who escaped from the National Zoo wandered a mile through Northwest D.C. before he was found safe and sound Monday after a daylong disappearance that sparked a social media frenzy when zoo officials announced the search on Twitter and Facebook.
The week-old giant panda cub that died at the National Zoo had a hard, discolored liver, and fluid floating freely in its abdomen, officials said Monday, conditions that might have contributed to its sudden death — but the exact cause can't be confirmed for several weeks.
The director of the National Zoo said Tuesday he intends to continue annual Easter Monday events despite several fights and a teen's stabbing this year - but not without a major review that includes security improvements and plans to close gates to control overflow crowds.
After the 2011 stabbing, zoo director Dennis Kelly pledged a "thorough review" of the zoo's security procedures, but insisted the annual tradition would go on.
