A zoo in the People's Park of Luohe in the central province of Henan, China, is being called out!
Zoo goers are accusing them of putting a Tibetan Mastiff in an enclosure and attempting to pass the dog off as a lion!
What?? Why would they even do something like that??
They've apparently done this before, even with two coypu rodents in a snake's cage, a white fox in a leopard's den and a different dog in a wolf pen, currently at the zoo.
The chief of the park's animal department said that the zoo does have a lion but it's at a breeding facility currently.
The dog was a zoo employee's who just happened to be hanging out in the lion enclosure, and just happened to sort of look like a lion, because of "safety concerns." Whatever that means.
How about the zoo just stops lying to their patrons and misinforming children. Dogs aren't lions. It's a pretty simple concept to grasp.
Shame on zoo! LOLz!
