Many residents in Xichang, Sichuan Province were interested after a new local zoo opened, but later they were shocked to see a cage claiming to have an African lion that had a golden retriever dog instead.
 

A video clip shot by one of the visitors has gone viral on Chinese social media, showing a golden retriever lying in a cage, with a sign outside saying it was an African lion.
 

“Dogs are so busy replacing other animals in zoos. I recalled the dog that was substituted for a wolf in another Chinese zoo,” one netizen said on China’s Twitter-like Sina Weibo.
 

The zoo responded on Monday, admitting that this was a mistake and apologizing to the public that the sign was not changed in time.
 

“This cage used to be for an African lion, but now it's been re-designated as one for a golden retriever,” one employee of the zoo told the media, explaining that the dog is kept by the owner of the zoo.
 

Tourists in Xianning, Central China’s Hubei Province found out that the “wolf” they saw was actually a dog in early March 2021. It drew the attention of thousands of netizens, who joked that the zoo should have used a husky dog, as it’s harder to tell from a real wolf.
 

动物园狮笼关了一只金毛网友:金毛狮王?

3月27日,四川西昌的一家动物园新装营业。有游客前去游玩时,发现挂着非洲狮牌子的笼子里,居然关着一只金毛犬。
 

有游客表示,钱不钱都无所谓,主要是没办法给孩子解释!
 

网友评论:
 

“金毛被关在里面,他也是冤枉的,做梦都想不到自己会假扮非洲狮。”
 

“请叫我金毛狮王。”
 

“弄虚作假这种事,弄到狮子头上了,你哪怕空闲的那个地方也可以,为什么要把我们的金毛狗关到里面。”
 

有工作人员称,以前这个笼子是关的非洲狮,但非洲狮已经转移到其它笼子,由于工作上的疏忽,宣传牌没有及时调整。
 

狮子变金毛的事件引发很多网友关注,这家动物园也火了,还有网友慕名前往,专门去探个究竟。
 

据了解,这家动物园为西昌市袁家山动物园,位于四川凉山西昌市的小庙乡。
 

目前,关于非洲狮宣传牌已经摘下。一排观赏区隔成了很多个笼子,里面有两头非洲狮,还有一头老虎。金毛狗还在里面,旁边的笼子里还关着一只哈士奇。
