Norfolk residents confuse dog for lion, call 911

It could have happened to anyone, really. Who hasn’t confused a labradoodle dog with a lion before?

In all honesty, the dog’s hair was clearly cut to mimic a lion’s.  It’s actually kind of a funny idea.

    I”m surprised some yahoo didn’t try to shoot it to mount on the wall in his den.

    It’s VA. At least they didn’t invoke “terrorism” and 9/11. Call in the drones to protect us!

    My coworker has her big, fluffy kitty groomed to look like a lion. It’s pretty cute!

    Hmmmm… I wonder how many reported it as armed and dangerous?

    The dog is cut to resemble the Old Dominion University Mascot (Big Blue – a lion). It is at all the tail-gating events and most sane people realize it is only a dog. Some people here in Norfolk are not the smartest.

    Oh, for pity’s sake. Male lions look nothing whatsoever like this dog. Not to mention the fact that the male lion generally weighs well more than 300 pounds.
    What, these idiots have never gone to a zoo, or watched a National Geographic Special?
