Reddit: The saddest government shutdown photo you will ever see

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The above photo popped up on the popular social media sharing site Reddit.

They're calling it "the saddest government shutdown photo you will ever see."

But the truth isn't actually all that sad.

The picture wasn't about how the shutdown closed the National Zoo.

Actually it was just a funny photo the child's father took while on a walk and sent to his wife.

She then posted it to Instagram, where it spread all over the nation.
