It;s China...if there isn't an elephant to kill for its tusk, they get confused.

Hilarious...rats in the snake cage. This zoo needs new workers - ones that know what a lion, a snake, a wolf...and a dog looks like. Noted with thanks.

A very strange zoo indeed! What kind of staff comprises the zoo makes me a little nervous if they think that they could really fool the public with such a gimmick. Just hope that this dog has a good home to go to!
