Chinese Zoo Tries To Pass Off Dogs As Lion, Wolf, Leopard

zoo-animal-lies-1.jpg

These are several shots from the People's Park in Luohe, Henan province, China, of the dogs the park uses as permanent stand-ins for the exotic species they claim to keep. Their African Lion is actually a Tibetan mastiff (above), and their wolf and leopard displays are filled with other, unrecognizable dog breeds. And in the actual dog exhibit? A f***ing pig. I'm joking, but there might as well have been.

Mr Liu Suya, chief of the park's animal department, insisted the zoo did have a lion but it had been taken to a breeding facility.


As for the dog that was in its cage, Mr Liu said it belonged to a employee and had been put there 'for safety reasons.'

A spokesman for the zoo said: 'We're doing our best in tough economic times.

'If anyone is unhappy with our displays we will give back their money.'

If I'm unhappy with the displays I get my money back, huh? Well start counting those bills because I don't know if I could be any MORE unhappy with these displays. Not only with your crappy animal impersonators, but with the all around quality of the exhibits. Those enclosures aren't even suited for a traveling petting zoo. It would be less depressing for me to keep a tiger in my bedroom. Well, ANOTHER tiger. RAWR! *playfully lunges to end of bed on all fours, tumbles off into nightstand, dildos spill everywhere* What if I told you those were snakes? No? EXHIBIT'S CLOSED, NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

Hit the jump for the wolf and leopard displays.

Thanks PYY, Crazy Cooter, Zim and ChaosLex, who agree they should just turn the whole thing into a dog park and call it a day.

    to be fair the snake one did once contain a snake...until they
    switched from store brand to wild caught rats and its lunch and
    dinner(currently on display) teamed up to eat it alive...

  • Bubbubsky

    The really sad part is, you just know these animals aren't going to last long. If they're not eaten, they'll be neglected.

  • Beet LeRace

    Although this is sad, I'm somewhat relieved they don't own actual lions and leopards - 'cause you just KNOW they'd be feeding them dogs.

  • MyName

    so their snake evolved into two giant rats? talking about irony.

  • qwert`

    rats. the yummy snack that eats you back. (in hindsight the mistake was putting 2 in at once)

  • galvatron

    Hmm maybe they would have more if they stopped killing exotic animals for their magical medicinal powers. Just a thought.

  • KaiserNeko

    Wow, their zoos even bootleg their animals.

  • Grindzombie

    This is what happens when you steal a page from North Korea's playbook...

  • failtuna

    Couldn't they just fill the enclosures with trees and shit, no one would be able to tell if there were animals or not

  • Bitches love trees.

  • MyName

    it would make the enclosures look less depressing too. but the economic times are hard, so they have probably no money for trees.

  • AniZaeger

    The Oakland Zoo comes to mind. Their lion enclosure is designed to mimic the natural habitat of lions. It's a beautiful job, but unfortunately, the lions enjoy all the hiding spots a bit too much at times...

    I think that's the back room of a PF Changs
