Zoo Denies Allegations That It Painted A Donkey To Look Like Zebra

Egyptian zoo ‘paints donkey’ to look like zebra

Or is it actually a donkey painted to look like a zebra?

Mahmoud Sarhan was visiting Cairo's International Garden park on Monday when he wondered over to the zebra pen. There are even smudges on the animal's face where the paint may have dripped a bit in Egypt's summer heat.

Is this a zebra or donkey?

"I know the shape of a donkey and I know the shape of zebras, so it was easy to know".

Explosion reported outside the US Embassy in Beijing
The U.S. and China are in the midst of a heated trade dispute, but America remains a popular destination for Chinese tourists. Beijing police said the suspect, a 26-year-old man from China's Inner Mongolia region, was taken to hospital for treatment.

We'll tell you in short form - it's a fucking painted donkey.

This is not the first time that a zoo has been accused of trying to fool its audience.

Yes Alex, my friend - it's a farmyard animal.

While different zebra species exhibit significant variability in size, stripe patterns, and snout colorings, their stripes typically do not smudge.

What Mesut Ozil's retirement says about Germany
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Ozalan from the ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party, said: "I congratulate Mesut Ozil". The 29-year-old's exit from Die Mannschaft was met with a muted response from fellow players.

And judging from the pictures, online animal experts sided with Mahmoud, according to CBS News.

"The ears are rounded, not oblong and pointy, and of course zebras have black skin, answering that age-old question of them being black with white stripes".

I mean, c'mon now.

The more he says it, the more he'll believe it.

Tour de France fans continue to taunt Chris Froome
Briton Geraint Thomas keeps the yellow jersey after finishing ahead of his rivals. "It is what it is and I am enjoying it still". He was accused of using racial slurs against Kévin Reza a year ago and was sent him on a diversity awareness course at the time.

But a senior official with Egypt's Central Administration for Zoos told ABC News that the "zebra" is, without a doubt, fake, adding that the facility doesn't fall under that group's supervision.
