A Chinese smuggler was caught red-handed with 22 baby bears running free in his car - but when questioned by police, the man claimed that he thought the animals were dogs.

Wu Meng, 28, told border patrol guards in south-west China that he was going to sue them when they took away what he described as rare pedigree Akita puppies.

When a vet confirmed that all 22 of the furry animals were not dogs and were in fact bears, Meng claimed that he had been ripped off by the seller

The bears are now being kept at a local zoo. The director of the Yunnan Wild Animal Zoo, Wang Sun, said that the cubs had been placed in a new enclosure and were being 'well cared for'
