This one took place Sunday at the Oregon Zoo. A man and a woman approach the Amur tiger exhibit, where a woman in a wheelchair has been for some time.

Man: Wow! I've never seen the tigers actually out and awake and doing something!
Woman: I know! Isn't it great?
Woman in wheelchair: If you go around the corner, the leopard is in a really playful mood today, coming right up to the glass and everything.
Man: Where?
(Woman points.)
Man: That was a leopard? I thought it was a polar bear.

(For the record, there is a polar bear at the zoo, but it is in the opposite direction from that in which the woman was pointing).

So much for the theory that animal prisons are educational!
