Zebra, Pony Run Loose on Staten Island
[NBC New York] A wild scene unfolded on New York's Staten Island Wednesday when a zebra and a pony were spotted running along a busy roadway after they apparently beat feet from a Christmas tree seller.
I already seen dis movie...
Part of their journey was captured on video by Zachary Osher, who was busy at work when he looked out the window of his shop and saw the animals on Victory Boulevard.
"Is this actually happening to me, am I finally losing my mind. This can't be happening," Osher told NBC 4 New York he remembered thinking. "This is a zebra on Staten Island. On the street!"
Osher used his phone to film the pair as they dodged traffic just after 9 a.m.
They had apparently beat feet from a nearby Christmas tree business, where they were used as an attraction, according to Giovanni Schirripa, the owner of the business.
The animals were later returned to the property, he said.
Both the pony and the zebra, a 4-month-old male named Rozzy, are doing fine, he said. They will be sent to live in a barn in New Jersey after the holidays.
