NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. – A six-month-old zebra named Ann Curry is back where she belongs after an escape from a Florida zoo on New Year's Eve.
The wild animal ran off while it was being transported to North Carolina, so it could be bred with another zebra, said Nancy Mitchell of the Shell Factory Zoo.
The truck driver taking Ann had pulled over, opened the horse trailer to give her water. And that's when the zebra made her move.
The zebra ran through neighborhoods for about an hour before getting caught, Mitchell said. No one was hurt by the zebra.
The striped animal was brought back to the zoo, where she was treated by a vet.
After appearing on the "Today Show" when the zebra was first born, it was named after news anchor Ann Curry.
