A zoo is accused of painting a donkey and passing it off as a zebra
CAIRO, Egypt -- It gives new meaning to the phrase "a wolf in sheep's clothing." Or in this case, a donkey in zebra stripes. A zoo in Cairo, Egypt, has been accused of trying to fool visitors by painting zebra stripes onto a donkey, but the zoo director insists the animal is the real thing. Mahmoud Sarhan, 18, said he was visiting a recently opened animal sanctuary at the International Garden municipal park when he spotted a strange-looking animal.
