An adorable red panda was on the loose Friday after escaping from its enclosure at the Sequoia Park Zoo in Eureka, Calif., officials said.

Masala, a young, furry female panda, escaped her grassy riparian habitat Thursday and was last seen in the forest behind the park, sparking an intense search effort in the area, zoo and city officials said.

The panda posed no danger to the public, but city officials advised anyone who sees the cat-sized animal not to approach it or try to capture it.
