SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A story you may have seen claims a zoo tried to pass off a golden retriever as an African lion.

It's true.

The sign on a cage at a zoo in southwestern China advertised that an African lion was on display.

But inside was a very cute, but very common golden retriever.

A worker at the zoo claimed the cage had housed a lion in the past, but it was moved to another location and the zoo hadn't gotten around to taking down the sign.

But a zoo visitor says he couldn't find lions anywhere else in the park.
