Zebras crossing... Brussels on Friday

Three zebras have gone on the loose in the Belgian capital Brussels, capping a generous helping of "animals at large" stories.

The group trotted through the streets after escaping from a local ranch, but were soon captured following an unlikely police chase.

Bernard Luyckx, a friend of the zebras' owner, said the animals were apparently upset by the sale of some of their stable-mates.

"Some of the horses got sold and the other zebras got mad and trampled the gates and fled into the streets. Luckily there were no injuries, nobody got hurt, the zebras too."
