An endangered red panda has escaped from a UK wildlife park for the second time in three months.

Kush, one of three endangered red pandas at Curraghs Wildlife Park on the Isle of Man, previously escaped in October when a branch fell down to form a bridge, allowing him to climb out of his enclosure.

The seven-year-old panda was captured four weeks later in a nearby garden.

He escaped again this week, and an investigation has been launched into how it happened.

General manager Kathleen Graham said red pandas were “very hardy” but added that she was “very concerned” to locate the missing animal.

Red pandas are classified as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List. They are great climbers and very curious, which means they can be difficult to contain.

The wildlife park team have been searching the surrounding area and motorists were being urged to slow down when driving in the vicinity of the park.

Kush is not dangerous but, if spotted, members of the public were urged not to try to catch him and to call the park instead.
