(Newser) – An escaped Ringling Brothers circus zebra led police on a mile-long high-speed chase yesterday in Atlanta, interfering with traffic on the city’s already congested Interstate. The episode lasted about 40 minutes, the AP reports. “All of a sudden a freaking zebra comes running down the street like a car,” a bystander recalls. “Five or six police cars were in hot pursuit.” The police apprehended the rogue animal, who was unharmed but for some minor cuts.
