Egyptian zoo busted painting donkeys to look like zebras

Mahmoud Sarhan visited a Cairo zoo and saw a zebra that did not look quite right.

Cairo's International Garden municipal park became a target of ridicule after an Egyptian student, Mahmoud Sarhan, posted images on Facebook of the suspicious beast.

This is not the first time that a zoo has painted donkeys to look like zebras.

But many social media users have noted that upon closer inspection, the animal has long floppy ears instead of the more rounded ears of a zebra. Or in this case, a donkey in zebra stripes.

Mr Sarhani, was seen posing with the donkey with a wry grin on his face, perhaps an indication that he knew the animal before him wasn't a zebra.

The zoo denied the allegations, with the zoo's director, Mohamed Sultan, insisting the zebras were not fakes.

N rejects election results
The ECP said that it has so far received 600 complaints from all over Pakistan regarding the ongoing elections. Hamdani said the situation was under control and voting was underway in Col Sher Khan village.

A zoo in Egypt has denied painting black stripes on a donkey to make it look like a zebra after a photo of the animal appeared online.

"When a visitor went to the cage of the "lion" at the zoo in Louhe, a city in Henan, they heard a loud bark", says the Mail.

In 2013, a Chinese zoo was criticized for trying to pass off a large dog as a lion.

CBS News also notes that zebras and donkeys, despite both bearing a resemblance to horses, are different species.

The photos, which went viral, show the animals' stripes appear to be smudging.
