Dog inside big cat enclosure at US zoo shocked the internet

A Reddit photo shows a Labrador chilling inside a cheetah enclosure at the US Zoo.

In New Jersey, United States, a man went to a zoo and was stunned to see a dog inside a cheetah enclosure. He posted the picture of this bizarre encounter on Reddit, where it has gone viral. Davidowicz, who shared the post, said he went to the zoo hoping to see a big cat, but was “99 percent sure it was not a cheetah”. This picture, posted five days ago, has garnered over one lakh upvotes on Reddit.

user told newsweek“We all laughed when we were close enough to see that it was just a happy lab.”

Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange is home to more than 200 species of animals, but in 2020, it added another animal to its residents – Bowie the Dog.

The Labrador is seen taking a nap in the open while sitting inside the enclosure. The photo gave Reddit users a chance to post jokes related to the situation.

“When you lie on your resume, but you’re an excellent liar,” commented one user. Another added: “…or an excellent cheater.”

“This is a stand-in. Cheetah is on vacation in Africa,” read one of the comments, while one Redditor added: “Man, its camouflage is crazy good!”

However some people recognized the dog and said that the cheetah would be inside with him.

Davidowicz, whose post started a discussion on Reddit, said: “It was still coming from afar and was like ‘this is a weird looking chubby cheetah’.”

newsweek said in its report that Bowie shares a cage with feline companion Nandi, an African cheetah that is used for attendance at events to educate the public on efforts to conserve big cats.
