Zoo's 'African Lion' Is Actually a Dog

A zoo in china is facing major criticism for reportedly trying to disguise a Tibetan mastiff as an exotic cat. The animal was put in a large cage with a sign saying "African lion," according to AFP. And this isn't the first time the zoo has been guilty of such a crime. The zoo held large rats in its snake cage and fox-like animals in its leopard cage, like no one would notice. "The zoo is absolutely cheating us," said one visitor who paid the $2.45 admission fee and felt duped.
