TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

When President Obama signed legislation Wednesday night to avert a default and allow the government to resume business, he also brought at least a little joy to online panda watchers.

With a stroke of Obama's pen, the National Zoo found it was again able to provide public access to its Giant Panda Cam, which looks in on the zoo's 8-week-old cub and her mother Mei Xiang.

The zoo's Information Technology staff began the process of bringing back the panda cams and other live animal cams this morning. According to the zoo's website, the 15 camera systems required federal resources, primarily staff, to operate and were deemed non-essential during the shutdown.
