SEARCY, Ark. (AP) - A hospital spokesman says the condition of a White County district judge who was seriously injured in a zebra attack has improved.

Communications specialist Lee Hogan of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences tells The Daily Citizen (https://bit.ly/1N7q7gb ) that judge Mark Derrick is in good condition. Court clerk Misty Perkins had said the judge suffered eye and arm injuries following the March 15 attack at his home.

The newspaper says the zebra is believed to be owned by Derrick’s father.

A spokesman for the Searcy Police Department says he was told by animal control officers that the zebra doesn’t violate a 2006 city ordinance against wild animals.

Perkins says court cases presided by Derrick in March have been rescheduled for later this month.
