Catch them if you can!
A small herd of zebras have been living the free range lifestyle in Maryland after breaking out of a private farm — and apparently they cannot be reigned in.
“You can’t hunt them down. They’re just too fast, they run, they won’t let you get near them,” Rodney Taylor, chief of Prince George county’s animal services department, told the ABC affiliate WJLA news. “We do have a feeding station set up, and we’re winning their confidence.

Authorities are planning to attract the striped beasts with food, tranquilize them and return them to the farm, however it’s been difficult.
