An animal described as an African lion at a Chinese zoo was exposed as a fraud - when the creature started barking in front of visitors.Chinese media reports said the zoo had replaced its genuine lion with a Tibetan mastiff dog.
A zoo official in Henan province said the dog - owned by one of the workers - was put in the cage when the real lion was sent away to a breeding centre. More at link


Just for clarification..this is a lion -



And this... is a dog!

Just noticed this at the bottom of the story -

Other species were also apparently mislabelled; there was a white fox in a leopard's den and another dog being passed off as a wolf.
What next? A pig in the hippopotamus display?

Who was the painter?


No need for paint.

They might have gotten away with it if they had kept the cage dark, muzzled the dog and asked people to look at a very bright light before going to look at the lions...
