Stupidity in China: zoo tried to pass off Golden Retriever as African lion

Thanks to Boing Boing: "On Saturday, a man and his child visited the Yuanjiashan Zoo in Xichang, Sichuan, China where they were surprised that a cage advertising an African Lion actually contained a Golden Retriever."

Sure they tried to claim it was all a mistake, had to move the lion, dog moved in--but "there's a long history of this happening in China zoos, from dogs actually "disguised" as lions to dogs as wolves to inflatable penguins."
