(AP) NEW YORK - New York City can be like a zoo sometimes, but a zebra running wild through the streets is not something you ordinarily see.
The Staten Island Advance reports (http://bit.ly/Yr7soL) a zebra and a miniature horse were spotted trotting through a shopping center parking lot Wednesday morning in Staten Island.
Metropolitan Drape & Blind owner Zachary Osher saw the runaway equines and shared his video with the newspaper. He says the animals ran down a street and narrowly escaped being hit by a car. He says two men in dark suits ran after them with lassoes.
A police spokesman says the animals were corralled and returned to a petting zoo.
