China’s brand is pretty much “cheap fake crap,” and this story won’t help with that at all:
The zoo in the People’s Park of Luohe, in the central province of Henan, replaced exotic exhibits with common species, according to the state-run Beijing Youth Daily.
It quoted a customer surnamed Liu who wanted to show her son the different sounds animals made – but he pointed out that the animal in the cage labelled ‘African lion’ was barking.
The beast was in fact a Tibetan mastiff – a large and long-haired breed of dog.
“The zoo is absolutely cheating us,” the paper quoted Liu, who was charged 15 yuan ($2.45) for the ticket, as saying.
“They are trying to disguise the dogs as lions.”
You know you’re not supposed to do that, right?
I am lion, hear me roar.
