Charles The Monarch, Dog, Mistaken For Lion In 911 Call

Huffington Post

Someone told cops he thought he saw the king of beasts loose on the street, and he wasn’t lion.

Dispatchers in Norfolk, Va. received a 911 call Tuesday reporting that a baby lion was strolling down the street, potentially on the hunt for its next meal, The Virginian-Pilot reported.

The animal in question, however, was no big cat, but actually Charles the Monarch, a Labradoodle whose coat had been shaved to make him resemble Big Blue, the mascot of Old Dominion University.

Charles’ owner, Daniel Painter, told the Pilot this is not the first time that Charles’ luxurious main has sparked a police call. On some occasions, he has taken Charles for a walk and noticed passersby running to their cars in fear.

“I tell people he’s a Lab-a-lion, and half the people really believe that,” Painter said.

A Facebook community page for Charles describes him as “Just your everyday party animal.”

  1. I sent this one in for “Laughs” (kinda sorta).
    Honestly, have the Sheeple become so brain dead that they can’t tell the difference between a Dog and a Lion?!
    I don’t know whether to laugh, or cry.
