NYC Zoos Refuse “Expensive” Pandas

Panda lovers, I have good news and bad news. The good is that unbeknownst to most of we oblivious members of the public, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney has been busting her ass trying to bring two pandas to the Central Park Zoo and thus make New Yorkers’ wildest dreams come true.
