Zebra, mini horse corralled after NYC street jaunt

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City can be like a zoo sometimes, but a zebra running wild through the streets is not something you

ordinarily see.

The Staten Island Advance reports a zebra and a miniature horse were spotted trotting through a shopping

center parking lot Wednesday morning in Staten Island.

Metropolitan Drape & Blind owner Zachary

Osher saw the runaway equines and shared his video with the newspaper.

He says the

animals ran down a street and narrowly escaped being hit by a car.

He says two men in dark suits ran after them with lassoes.

A police spokesman says the animals were corralled and returned to a petting zoo.
