The National Zoo says a female red panda has been euthanized at a conservation center in Virginia after suffering brain swelling associated with a microscopic parasite. The 7-year-old red panda named Shama died Saturday. She became well-known at the zoo as the mate of Rusty. He escaped the National Zoo last year. Shama gave birth to three cubs earlier this summer but developed a brain disorder that quickly progressed.
