Cairo's International Garden municipal park has moved to deny allegations they painted black stripes on a white donkey after suspicious images emerged online of the animal in question.
Oh, and the black paint around its face had been smudged in the heat. Or in this case, a donkey in zebra stripes.
Egyptian student Mahmoud Sarhan, 18, was visiting the International Garden in Nasr City, Cairo, when he spotted the suspiciously-striped creature.
In spite of the visible evidence of a paint job, zoo director Mohamed Sultan denied the claims and assured local radio station Nogoum FM that the animal, and a similar companion in the enclosure, were in fact zebras, reports Newsweek. The animal in the photograph has a grey snout.
