When Is A Donkey Not A Donkey?

when it is painted to look like a Zebra!

 on July 21st, Mahmoud A. Sarhani, a Cairo student who had recently visited the recently opened zoo, in Cairo’s International Garden municipal park, could not believe his eyes,

 there was a donkey wearing Zebra stripes! apparently, zoo staff painted a common donkey white with black stripes, trimmed its mane to make it look pointy and tried to pass it off as a zebra,unfortunately, the hot weather caused the paint to smudge which attracted unwanted attention,

Mahmoud’s photo quickly went viral on social media, getting over 10,000 reactions and 1,500 comments on Facebook, most people found it hilarious, but some declared themselves outraged and asked for an explanation from the zoo’s management, Nogoum FM radio also posted some photos of the so-called zebra, and they pretty much confirm Mahmoud A. Sarhani’s findings, but they also managed to contact Mohamed Sultan, the director of International Gardens park, for an explanation, Sultan flat-out denied rumors that the zebra at International Gardens zoo was fake, despite multiple veterinarians confirming that the animal in the photos was actually a donkey, even though the animal had usually-long ears, and also lacks the characteristic mane of its species, which extends forward past the ears, Sultan stuck to his story, so that’s a relief, it was a Zebra after all!
