Escaped Zebra

This afternoon, one of my coworkers stopped by my desk with some 'breaking news.' There was a zebra (yes - a real life zebra) galavanting around downtown Atlanta this afternoon. The Barnum and Bailey Circus is in town and apparently, someone left the door (and a cage) open and the zebra darted. The AJC reported that he was spotted in a parking lot near the Sam Nun Federal Building, CNN, Centennial Olympic Park, was seen running westbound on Alabama street near Five Points Marta Station and even made its way to the downtown connector and was galloping between lanes of traffic.

Now, I am really intrigued by the fact that this animal was able to find its way to the connector. I mean, I'm not 100% sure that my husband could find his way to the connector from downtown (no offense, hubby). But somehow, this zeb-bra did.

I can't even imagine what I would think if I saw a real life zebra running along side my car - on the connector. I'd probably start looking for hidden cameras. In fact, when I heard that the zebra was on the connector, I went right over to the Georgia Navigator website and started looking at the live camera shots and low and behold --- a zebra. (picture courtesy of the Georgia Navigator website)

I was laughing all the way home --- but that's because I wasn't headed down the connector. If this zebra had of been on 285 or Peachtree Industrial, I'm pretty sure I would have been livid.

Oh well, nice try zebra. I hope you enjoyed your run around town. I just wish tax dollars weren't being spent to have APD chase around Africa animals.

  1. Hi!! Thanks for commenting on my blog! That is sooooo funny about the Zebra. I used to live in a high rise at Peachtree & 3rd and would have a heart attack if I saw a zebra, ha! Are you sitting in the overflow seating at Beth Moore?
