Zebras, horses take walk around town
COLORADO SPRINGS — The circus came to town Friday, but a few wayward animals put on their own show.
Four zebras and three horses from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus took an unscheduled run on a road just outside World Arena, where the circus was performing this weekend. About 15 animal handlers chased them for about a half-hour
The animals were being walked into the arena from a corral in the parking lot to practice when noise from nearby Interstate 25 spooked the zebras, said Carrie Coleman, veterinary technician for the circus.
The zebras ran onto a road alongside the interstate, and the horses followed. The animals were recaptured unharmed and no one was hurt, officials said.
