The Las Vegas Zoo (yes, it exists) acquired two animals this year, a leopard and a binturong. The leopard has already gone from arthritic to dead, and the binturong (also know as a bearcat, although it's related to neither bear nor cat) smells of popcorn and Fritos, as is characteristic of the species. His name is Bruce.
The fact that it's run by a chain-smoking ex-homicide detective just makes it all the better.
