Chinese Zoo Tries to Pass Off Pets as Wild Animals

Imagine bringing your child to the zoo and explaining the different sounds each animal makes when suddenly the lion starts barking! That's precisely what happened at a Zoo in China.

"The zoo is absolutely trying to cheat us," said a visitor with the surname Liu. "I had my young son with me so I tried to play along and told him it was a special kind of lion. But then the dog barked, and he knew straight away what it was, and that I'd lied to him. How can they tell such dreadful tales and expect to get away with it?"

A visitor, who did not want to be named, said, 'I don't know how they've got the nerve to try it. They must think we are all stupid."

Three other species were also labeled and housed incorrectly. Two rat-like rodents called coypu were in a snake's cage, another dog was in the wolf pen, and a white dog or fox was substituted for a leopard. 

One user of China's Twitter equivalent commented, "They should at least use a husky to pretend to be a wolf."

The zoo officials say that the lion was removed for breeding and the dog, which belongs to an employee, had been housed in the zoo due to safety concerns. A spokesman for the zoo said, "We're doing our best in tough economic times."

Judging from the grimy sign and dingy enclosure, the zoo definitely seems to have fallen on hard times. 

The zoo apologized for the exhibits and was closed for "rectification."
