Moving to Brooklyn

Via Gothamist: This weekend this little guy, Mao Mi the red panda (the AP actually calls him a "cuddly cutie") arrived at the Prospect Park Zoo in Brooklyn. According to The Guardian:

There is estimated to be a population of less than 2,500 [red pandas] remaining in their wild habitats of Bhutan, China, India, Laos, Nepal and Burma and their numbers are increasingly threatened as humans encroach on their habitat. Zookeepers in Brooklyn said the new arrival was hogging the attention from visitors and was busy exploring his new home.
