#zebra

From the New York Daily News:

A zebra and a pony ran wild through a shopping center parking lot off Victory Boulevard in Staten Island Wednesday morning, stopping traffic and leaving onlookers in disbelief. 
“There was basically a stampede in front of my store,” said Zachary Osher, who caught the bizarre scene on video. 
“It was crazy. It’s something you don’t see everyday.” 
Osher was at his desk at Metropolitan Drape and Blind when he spotted the unlikely duo, pursued by two men clad in dark suits wielding lassos, the Staten Island Advance first reported. 
“When I saw the pony, I was like ‘eh,’ but then I saw the zebra,” he said. “I thought it was some kind of a circus act.” 
The hoofed animals headed out onto the busy boulevard, dodging cars along the way, until they landed in the Greenbelt Native Plant Center across the street. 
“There was a whole show here. I couldn’t believe it,” said a Center employee who wished to remain anonymous. “I said ‘Oh my God, am I dreaming or what?’”

I love New York.

LIKE THE FELLA ONCE SAID…  A lucky zebra escapes the jaws of a hungry lion — getting in a kick to the big cat’s head for good measure — at the Ngorongoro Conservation  area in Tanzania.  Tour operator Thomas Whetten captured the extraordinary scene, saying “It was spectacular - even  better than you see at the movies. Its very rare for a zebra to get away  without being mauled at all.”  (Photo: Thomas Whetten / Caters via the Telegraph)
