Zebra escapes: Galloping farm animal escapes, sightings set around Tenn. locale

A zebra escaped, and has Tenn. townspeople scratching their heads at the black-and-white striped “farm” animal galloping about various locales. Yet though some phoned in with sightings of a strange-looking horse, it was in fact a real zebra out loose in East Tenn., SeattlePi shares this Friday, Dec. 13, 2013.

The zebra escape hasn’t been a permanent ordeal, fortunately, as the animal has at last been found meandering across the countryside — the animal, which fled a local farm, was seen on highways, prairies, and near homes — and has not yet been officially returned to its owners. According to Bradley County police officials, numerous sightings and even videotaped reports of a zebra escapee were recorded in recent weeks.

The name of this beautiful and elusive animal? Zeek the zebra has been out and about it seems, and perhaps just wanted a while out on the Tenn. town independently.

According to Ronald Price, the owner of Zeek, said that his zebra escaped from his Cleveland farm. While galloping about in a field, it made a huge jump and managed to bound over a tall fence. Since then, it has been MIA. State officials are saying that any who see this animal should contact local law enforcement immediately, because as one call noted, this strange-looking horse is no horse at all.

Mr. Price is hoping that some sharp-sighted people will be able to find his zebra and bring it home safely.
