The warm-weather mammal named Einstein was actually headed to an event in Center City when his transport got stuck.

He was supposed to be a part of an event put on by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center. But he was a no-show. His handler decided it was best to bring him back to his petting zoo.
