Hurray, my local zoo decided to start breading red panda. Male named Pung came from Belgium on 5 July. Unfortunately in few days the zookeeper saw, that Pung had injured his leg. He called the vet. When she came and Pung saw her, he was so scared, that he climbed on a huge tree in his exhibit. There were rubbery barriers on the tree, but he climbed over it. Zookeeper tried to call him down, without success. Pung was climbing higher and higher ... So what now? They call firemen. One of them get quite near to Pung and with his help they get him down. He was treated and left in background until he got healthy.
The tree received double barrier and Pung is looking for new young friend (female
) from Zagreb.
Pung lives in quite nice exhibit with one big (with barriers) and one smaller tree, a lot of large branches on the floor and two shelters (enter of one of them is turned away from the visitors path, so they will have some privacy).
And here is our star Pung ...
then he came down
