Egyptian zoo busted painting donkeys to look like zebras


A zoo in Egypt’s capital, Cairo, has denied painting black stripes onto a donkey to pass it off as a zebra.

The picture was taken by Mahmoud Sarhan at International Gardens Park in Cairo and has been shared more than 7,7000 times on Facebook.

“We finished our tour then we decided to take some pictures… When the zebra came near to me, I realised from the first look that it was a painted donkey not a zebra,” Mahmoud is quoted as saying.

In 2013, visitors to a zoo in China said they felt cheated when the animal in the “African lion” cage turned out to be a hairy Tibetan mastiff dog.
