CAIRO: The body of what appears to be a large Caucasian dog was mistaken for an adolescent lion, after it was found among trash in the industrial city of Mahalla in Gharbia governorate early Wednesday, reported Youm7.

Some Mahalla residents found the body lying on the street with small piles of garbage, and they gathered around it along with local children, and reported that a lion had been discovered.

A security source denied the lion rumors, stating “it is a corpse of a dead dog of rare species,” reported state-owned news agency MENA.
