(User Submitted) – It's not uncommon for a dog or even a horse to break loose and run through a neighborhood, but residents of one Sacramento suburb were caught completely off-guard when they saw not one, but two zebras running through the streets of their neighborhood yesterday. The zebras, who are owned by an area resident who uses them in rodeos, were eventually captured, but not after leading law enforcement on a wild chase that lasted nearly five hours, reports the Sacramento Bee.

The first zebra was apprehended in the pool area of an apartment complex; the second was injured after it was struck by a car. It's expected to be OK, as is a teen who tried to play the hero: "One kid said he used to tame wild mustangs," said an onlooker. "He put his hand in the zebra's face. Later he got kicked."
