Runaway Zebra Leads Police on Lengthy Chase: 'There's No Way There's a Zebra in My Backyard'
The zebra is owned by a local resident.
A runaway zebra caused quite a stir in Florida after the animal escaped from private property on Friday.
Police said the zebra collided with a vehicle and shattered the 21-year-old driver’s window before leading police in Tampa on a chase at about 2 p.m.
Part of the chase was captured on helicopter surveillance footage where the zebra, Jolley, can be seen running through a sandy area.

Jolley later ran into a local man’s backyard while evading capture.
"I kept telling myself 'there's no way there's a zebra in my backyard,'" Mark Ross told WFTS. "I was taking video all the way across to the point where I could get something to prove I wasn't crazy."
Police managed to capture Jolley after two hours and return the animal to its owner, Jennifer Caudill, 35
The animal was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries.
The zebra was legally owned, according to reports.
