The pandas in this Chinese animal cafe are actually dogs in disguise

Don't be fooled — the pandas in a new animal cafe in Chugdu, China are actually Chow Chow dogs with dyed fur.

From the BBC News:

(The cafe owner) tells Hongxing News that he imports his dye from Japan and has hired special staff for dyeing the dogs.

"Every time we dye it costs 1,500 yuan [$211; ¬£163]," he says. "The dye is really expensive." He says that this is to ensure the quality of the dye, and says that it in no way affects the animals…

But it has also raised a lot of concern. One vet, Li Daibing, told Hongxing News that he urged people not to dye their pets, saying: "This could damage their fur and skin."
