The Sad Panda who usually hangs around the bull by Bowling Green is apparently missing. Considering his mental state, this is not good. A concerned citizen has posted this flyer asking for information on his whereabouts, and we would also ask the Samaritans to be on alert this weekend for calls from people with growling, bearlike voices. Our fellow Panda Enthusiasts at Gothamist postulate that he may have gone on vacation, and a commenter over there asserts that someone from the Downtown Alliance said he was in Shanghai. But, readers, we called the Downtown Alliance, and they say they have no idea where the Sad Panda is. And so we fear the worst. That is: We fear he's walking around among us. Naked.
