LION DOG: Labradoodle Shaved Like A Lion Sparks Mass Panic In Virginia

By 01.09.13

I meant to post this earlier and forgot about it, but it’s too damn good to put off until the morning: A Labradoodle with a sizable following on Facebook whose owner calls it “Charles the Monarch” and shaves it to resemble a lion struck fear into the hearts of Norfolk, Virginia residents today who were convinced that a lion had escaped the local zoo and was terrorizing people in the streets. Yes, this is something that really happened.

Reports the Hampton Roads Pilot:

Although it was actually a uniquely groomed dog roaming loose, three callers to 911 on Tuesday reported a baby lion, the city of Norfolk said today.

Two calls came after 10 a.m. on Granby Street near the zoo and on Llewellyn Avenue.

About 1:20 p.m., another 911 caller reported seeing a baby lion on Colley Avenue at 50th Street.

“I’d like to report a lion sighting,” one caller said.

“Say that again?” a dispatcher replied.

In the call near the zoo, a woman said, “There was a lion that ran across the street – a baby lion. It was about the size of a Labrador retriever.” Another caller said, “I don’t know if it got away from the zoo or what.”

The 911 calls are pretty hilarious to listen to…

Here is a pic of this “baby lion” from its Facebook page with a statue of an actual lion…

Now here is a video of the dog that struck fear into the hearts of some Norfolk residents today…

Calm down, people. Jesus.
