CARMICHAEL, Calif. (AP) -- Two zebras are now safe on an Oregon ranch after a wild romp through the streets of a Northern California suburb over the weekend.
The zebras were being loaded onto a truck Saturday evening in Carmichael, east of Sacramento, when they were spooked by dogs and went running in opposite directions.
Confused residents reported zebra sightings throughout the downtown area for next five hours until sheriff's deputies were able to round them back up.
Bystanders helped corral one of them after it was hit by a car. The zebra suffered only a superficial cut.
The second zebra was found in the pool of an apartment complex.
Their owner, Michael Mastagni, transported his entire herd of seven zebras, including the two runaways, to his ranch in Bly, Ore., on Sunday.
