Nope, turns out it was just a super cute dog!

On Tuesday, 4 people called Norfolk, Virginia 911 to report a BABY LION was running loose on the streets.  Ya can't blame them....if it was dark and YOU saw this walkin down Hertel, you'd probably think so too!

Fortunately, it was just a Labradoodle who's owner was an Old Dominion University alumni, and they're mascot is the lion.  So like any other alumni-dog-owner would, he had the pup groomed to look just like one, with a colored mane and puffy lion tale.

The guy owns a lawn and garden store in the area, and the pup had just wandered off.  He was reunited with his owner, and the sleepy little town went on to live safely without lions. Or tigers.  Or bears.
