Labradoodle confused for lion


This Labradoodle named Charles lives in Norfolk, Virginia where he's frequently mistaken for a lion on the loose. Apparently, 911 dispatchers received three separate 911 calls this week reporting the "lion."

“I just saw an animal that looked like a small lion.” It had “the mange and everything,” a man said. He had seen it on Delaware Avenue near Llewellyn Avenue.

“I don’t know if it got away from the zoo, or what,” he said
