Police in Molina de Segura in Spain received several calls regarding a lion spotted in a public garden. As they prepared to embark on the task of capturing a big cat, they were suprised as they ended up catching a huge dog with an elaborate hairdo to resemble a mane. The tail of the dog was also made tufted.
The animal had a microchip and the police were able to identify the owner and later reunite the dog with the owner. It is not clear why the owner changed the appearance of the dog to resemble a lion.
Se han recibido esta mañana varios avisos alertando de que habían visto suelto por la zona de huerta un león 🦁, otros un bicho extraño, pero finalmente le hemos pasado el lector de microchip y ha resultado ser un… perro 🐕. Identificando a su titular. pic.twitter.com/O5k6ZClX9a— Policia Local Molina de Segura (@MolinaPolicia) March 7, 2020
