Finding Masala: A Community Gathers to Search
Yesterday, zoo officials requested the public’s help in finding the missing animal. “We are relying on the public to help us locate her – by keeping eyes open and cell phones at the ready,” explained Zoo Manager Gretchen Ziegler.
Folks began showing up at 8:30 to help but there is another gathering at 10 a.m. Sooo, there is still time to get there and sign up. Bundle the kids up warmly, bring your cell phone and a desire to help.
UPDATE 11:16 p.m.: Sequoia Park Zoo posted on their Facebook about 10:30 a.m. today, “Masala our red panda is still on her ‘walkabout’. Please keep your eyes open … especially around bamboo. She eats between 2 and 4 pounds of bamboo a day. Maybe she is eating your bamboo!”
