A zebra escaped from a zoo in the South Korean capital Seoul on Thursday and wandered the streets of a residential area for three hours before being caught and taken home.
Distraught pedestrians watched as the animal rammed past cars, wandered down a street and stuck its nose in garbage bags, footage showed.
The zebra, named Sero, which means vertical in Korean, was taken from the zoo in Seoul Grand Park.

Officials managed to restrain the zebra and give it anesthetic muscle relaxants, the Seoul Gwangjin Fire Station said. He was brought back to the ranch in the back of a pickup truck, footage shows.
Video clips of Sero’s day out went viral on social media.
“Literally zebra crossing” one tweet read.
