    The 911 caller reported that the baby lion was walking down Colley Avenue, possibly looking for food, near 50th Street. So police called the Virginia Zoo around 10:15 a.m. to make sure the lions were all accounted for, said Winfield Danielson, a zoo spokesman.

    Mramba, the male lion, and Zola, the female, were in their habitats.

    As it turns out, it was Charles the Monarch that was out and about.

    Neighborhood regulars know Charles, who hangs out with his owner at Daniel Painter's business, Daniel's Lawn & Garden Center, on Colley Avenue.

    Charles is a cross of Labrador retriever and poodle shaved to look like the mascot of Old Dominion University.

    Dunno, but if I had a terrible emergency, I would nope not to get those operators, especially #3. I have to be nit-picky, but .... My apologies to all of the sharp-as-a-tack 911 operators out there.
