Zoo paints donkeys to replace dead zebra

275x250.jpgWhen the zebras at a Gaza zoo died earlier this year, bosses didn't want to disappoint visiting children… so they painted stripes on donkeys.

The owner of Marah Land Zoo in Gaza City said that when their zebra died they couldn't afford the $40,000 it would have cost to import another.

As a result, staff used black hair dye on white female donkeys, painting stripes and creating a faux zebra.

While their efforts may not have made the most convincing zebra, because most of the children who visit the zoo have never seen a zebra before they are non the wiser.

Bosses insist they are not making an ass out of visitors… just a zebra out of an ass.
