NORFOLK, Va. (January 9, 2013)--Police in Norfolk, Va., got reports about a lion on the loose, but the lion was no lion.
It was just Daniel Painter's Labradoodle named Charles the Monarch.
The pooch has a cut that looks like a lion's shaggy mane and is the color of a big cat.
The Virginian-Pilot reported that police even called the Norfolk Zoo to make sure the zoo’s two lions were in their cages.
Painter joked that he tells people his dog is a "lab-a-lion."
