Washingtonians seem to have a special place for wild animals.
The Smithsonian National Zoo put out an all-points bulletin via Twitter on June 24, 2013, after one of its racoon-like red pandas, Rusty, went missing. Zoo staff members searched trees and neighborhoods for the missing critter. Rusty was later found in an Adams Morgan neighborhood, and zoo officials say it's "highly likely" he escaped through tree canopy. Abby Wood/AFP/Getty Images
