You may have heard of the Chinese zoo that tried passing off a caged Tibetan mastiff dog as a lion but now a circus in northern Italy has disguised dogs and called them pandas.
The circus painted black patches on the ears and backs of two white Chow Chow puppies, reported Italian newspaper Corriere della Sierra.
According to Fox, the Police said the circus owners told any doubtful customers that the animals were half-panda, half-dog hybrids.
The owners of the circus have been arrested says ABC News but not before dozens of people had paid to pose with the two ‘pandas’.
As one online commenter said:
“It’s a ruff business… LOL.”
