‘A donkey in zebra stripes’. Every day something strange happens around the world and there is another bizarre addition to the list. Well, this is known to all that you can hide nothing in this era of social media. Lately, a zoo in Cairo, Egypt, has been accused of painting stripes on a donkey to make it look like a zebra. However, the management has denied allegations. A picture is going viral on social media in which a young boy named Mahmoud A. Sarhan can be seen posing with the ‘donkey-turned-zebra’.

The picture is indeed funny. Along with it, the young boy has also shared the video. He reportedly posted the picture after visiting Cairo’s International Garden municipal park.

If you look at the pics, at first, he appears like zebra. However, on paying attention, social media users noticed that the animal has long floppy ears which are different from zebra. Well, the picture is going viral with people giving mixed opinions on it.

The director of the zoo, Mohammed Sultan, said to a news channel, “The zebra is real and not painted.”

This is not the first time something like this has happened as earlier in Gaza, two donkeys were painted like zebra. In 2013, another case popped up where guests lost their cool when a zoo tried to pass off a hairy dog as a lion.
