People mistake labradoodle for lion roaming streets of Norfolk

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Authorities in Norfolk, Virginia, were on alert for a dangerous beast roaming the streets.

Police got a call from someone who swore he saw a baby lion on the street. But believe it or not, that lion on the loose turned out to be Charles, a labradoodle with a cut resembling the shaggy mane of a lion.

Police even called the Norfolk Zoo and had them make sure all the lions were still in their cages before they realized it was a huge case of mistaken identity.
