The Government Shutdown Panda Cam

Wednesday, October 02, 2013 - 11:45 AM

As we all know, the government shutdown took effect October 1st, leaving vital services offline, suspending the pay of millions of federal workers, and disrupting things like food safety programs. But for some reason, the media seems preoccupied with the interruption of The National Zoo's beloved "Panda Cam." Seriously. Everyone mentions it. It's bananas. So, since this seems like a matter of pressing national importance, we've decided to put up our own makeshift panda cam, so that everyone can focus on more important things. Enjoy!

SD Zoo's PandaCam continues uninterrupted. It's awfully cute. Just saying. :)
