Animals on the lam … again

NCPA October 27, 2021

A runaway zebra in rural Louisiana? An alligator, maybe. But folks in the Gloster area of DeSoto Parish spotted a roaming zebra named Zydeco who broke away because he was apparently unhappy with his new pasture. In Glendale, Ariz., police chased a breakaway bovine through a residential area in the middle of the night. The cow was finally captured when a helpful citizen threw a lasso around its neck. And boaters about a mile off the Florida coast rescued a dog named Zuko who was swimming around their vessel. Apparently Zuko was on a boat with his family when he jumped off. No one realized he was missing at first. The rescuers used information from Zuko’s tags to contact his owners who were frantically searching for him 15 miles away.
