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.
