Catch Me if You Can!

11:00 AM -- The Associated Press reports on a rebellious Red Panda, wholly unrelated to Light Reading's Red Panda, the non-rebellious verbal genius:

    Yin, a 1-year-old that resembles a raccoon with red, white and black fur, was discovered missing from her exhibit Saturday. On June 21, Yin made visitors wait two hours until she emerged from her habitat for her debut only to escape into a nearby tree.

    How and why she escaped from her habitat, which includes an air-conditioned bamboo hut and logs for climbing, is unclear.

Hey, that's more than we get in China Town.

    Staff lowered the ground level around the exhibit's perimeter and put electrified wire around her habitat after the first escape. While the wires don't carry much current, the staff thought it would prevent a second escape.

    "We don't know how she got out," Till said. "She's fooling the experts."

Hmm... Has anyone seen this man lurking about her cage?

    Bockheim believes Yin is using low tree branches that extend into her habitat to escape.

    "There are routes we might not see but a panda does," he said.

Well, Mr. Bockheim, I think we both know there's only one way for you to find out...
