CLEVELAND, Tenn. (AP) — The black-and-white-striped animal that’s been spotted at different places around a Tennessee town isn’t a funny-looking horse.
Nope, there’s a zebra loose in East Tennessee.
Bradley County dispatchers say they’ve had several people call to report sightings of the animal – near homes, businesses and even a highway.
Although some people have tried to catch him, the animal named Zeek has remained elusive.
Zeek’s owner, Ronald Price, told WRCB-TV that the animal escaped from his farm in Cleveland about three weeks ago by jumping a high fence.
Price says he’s keeping a watch out and hopes that someone is able to help Zeek return home safely.
