NORFOLK, Va. – A Labradoodle mistaken for a lion prompted a 911 call in Norfolk, Virginia.

The Virginian-Pilot reports a 911 caller reported a baby lion was walking down Colley Avenue in Ghent, Va., possibly looking for food.

Police then contacted the Virginia Zoo around 10:15 a.m. to make sure all the lions were accounted for.

Mramba, the male lion, and Zola, the female, were in their habitats.

Charles the Monarch is no lion. He’s just a Labradoodle that enjoys a nice stroll.

People living in the area know Charles well. After all, he’s shaved to look like the mascot of Old Dominion University.

Be sure to check out Charles the Monarch on Facebook.
