“Mad” Zebra Breaks Free In Middle Tennessee, Gets Tased

Don’t taze me bro!

This striped little pony was seen waltzing down the side of the road in Cookeville, Tennessee, this morning.

As the only fully striped large mammals out there besides tigers, zebras are true fashion icons of the animal kingdom alongside leopards and cheetahs. This show stopper stopped traffic earlier this morning while strutting down the side of the road.


“It’s not everyday you see a zebra on your way to school – but folks in Cookeville did this morning (Yes, it’s real).”

News of the zebra’s escapades first broke on Facebook, when a local elementary school posted a memo:

“Good morning Prescott Families—There is a zebra on the loose in the Prescott area. It escaped a truck, was tazed, and is mad. Do not approach. (Yes, really.)”

A teacher immediately called the school to tell them their Facebook page was hacked,  but then she saw the animal for herself just strolling down the side of Highway 111.

The zebra has since been apprehended.

What a wild start to the weekend though.
