It started with counterfeit purses, sneakers and iPods, moved on to museums filled with fake antiquities and now I understand theyre passing dogs off as lions! Is there nothing the Chinese wont fake?
A Chinese zoo ridiculed for passing off a shaggy dog as a lion has shut down temporarily for "rectification", media reported Friday.
The zoo's supposed "African lion" was exposed as a fraud when the dog used as a substitute -- a Tibetan Mastiff -- started barking, the state-run Beijing Youth Daily had reported earlier.
Tibetan Mastiff, disguised as a lion: gives new meaning to the term copycat
Lyin Eyes: Eagles
Apparently the zoo had other creative fakes too.
Heres their panda:
Like the museum that was filled with fakes, the zoo was closed down when the scam was revealed.
The moral to this story: When your King of the Jungle barks
when he should be roaring,
you may well be the victim of a hoax.
Who are you going to believe, me or your Lion eyes?
This public service announcement was brought to you by the Ministry of Government Transparency.

Luv it! I can see a future for this technique in a petting zoo for children where they can get up and personal with these creatures!
my tabby thinks he’s a liger.
