Zoo accused of painting donkeys to look like zebras

An employee first suspected something was up when he was cleaning a donkey's hindquarters and found Kilroy peeking over a wall.

Two out of three hyenas can't taste the difference.

Back in the 90's when in Tijuana, I saw a guy that had painted a donkey with zebra stripes. He had the poor animal on the street corner trying to sell "zebra rides". Just horrible. We spent the rest of the day brainstorming how we could help the donkey escape.

Let's not be insensitive. Maybe the donkey identified as a Zebra.

Yeah... if they ever catch the guy who painted them, he'll be the one wearing a black-and-white striped outfit.

Old punch line about painting zebras:

Tarzan stripes forever.

Did the zoo paint a white donkey with black stripes or a black donkey with white stripes?
Then again, are zebras white with black stripes or black with white stripes?

Drain the aquarium!
Make Menageries Great Again!

Around here the donkeys have dark grey on white stripes but those terrorist bastards have painted matching grey stripes making the donkeys appear solid grey! Bastards!

Maybe he wanted a more slimming look?

Binary system paint-by-number.

"Art for Art's sake."

"This is not the first time that a zoo has painted donkeys to look like zebras. In 2009, a zoo in Gaza did the same thing, saying that it could not procure real zebras due to an Israeli blockade." Oh, right, blame it on Hamass.

"I'm not a zebra. It's the Doppler effect."

Their first attempt at painting camels turned out even worse.

A simple black and white case of fraud?

Call the black and whites! (Zoo police, or police the zoo?)

Public libraries in the Chicago area have a unique arrangement with the area zoos to allow patrons to check out animals, take them home and return them.

So far, the only animals that can be checked out are zebras because they are already barcoded.

Another infamous fake zebra.
