The male red panda, named ‘Rusty’, was last seen at its Sunday feeding at 6 p.m. National Zoo spokeswoman Pamela Baker-Masson says that Rusty was reported missing by animal keepers around 8 a.m.

Rusty was recovered in the nearby Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington D.C. and was taken to the zoo’s animal hospital for a full checkup.

Rusty came from the Lincoln Children’s Zoo and will be a year old in July. The red panda had been on display for a just a few weeks before going on the lam Monday. Sources from the zoo have still yet to report the condition of the panda since its return.
