A zoo in China has substituted a golden retriever as a lion, much to the confusion of its visitors. 

A video of the dog sitting in the African lion cage at Yuanjiashan Zoo in Xichang, Sichuan has been circulated on social media.

The enclosure featured signage explaining the animal was an African lion, but the actual animal inside didn’t seem to match up. 

A worker at the zoo said the lion had been moved to a different enclosure, explaining the animals were going through a reshuffle and staff hadn’t gotten around to taking down the lion sign.

It’s not the first time zoos in China have tried to substitute animals with another species.

In 2019, a zoo in Wuhan was criticised for putting a dog in a wolf enclosure.
