Two striped animals spent five hours this weekend romping through the streets of Carmichael, Calif. While their owner loaded them into a truck Saturday, dogs spooked the two zebras and sent them running in opposite directions.
Many Carmichael residents reported zebra sightings, and sheriff’s deputies eventually rounded up the striped pair. A car had hit one zebra, but it suffered only a superficial cut. The other zebra was found in an apartment complex’s swimming pool. Both have been returned to the owner, who transported them to an Oregon ranch.
