Who Are You Going to Believe, Me or Your Lion Eyes?

It started with counterfeit purses, sneakers and iPods, moved on to museums filled with fake antiquities and now I understand they’re passing dogs off as lions! Is there nothing the Chinese won’t 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.

Here’s their panda:




and Buffalo:

dogs and cats

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

bo roar

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!
