This is just an oddity but I couldn’t resist.
Although it was actually a uniquely groomed dog roaming loose, three callers to 911 on Tuesday reported a baby lion, the city of Norfolk said today.
Two calls came after 10 a.m. on Granby Street near the zoo and on Llewellyn Avenue.
About 1:20 p.m., another 911 caller reported seeing a baby lion on Colley Avenue at 50th Street.
“I’d like to report a lion sighting,” one caller said.
“Say that again?” a dispatcher replied.
Many house cats (large ones at least) have been mistaken for wild or African cats. Some dogs have certainly been mistaken for hellhounds. But this one was pretty funny. Is this the first time he has come out with his new hairdo? Why was the owner not with him? I suspect this is some pretty nice PR for the guy’s shop. The dog looks cute.
