I think I have mentioned before that I really don't like to watch our local television six o'clock news - it is so full of violence, crime, and sensationalism that it just makes me irritated to watch. So we fast-forward through pretty much all of it except the weather.
But last night, there was finally something newsworthy - a zebra escaped from the Barnum & Bailey's Circus that is in town and ran down the freeway during evening rush hour!
I was first notified that there was a zebra on the loose by a coworker who had left early-ish from work, and called to let the rest of those traveling north from the airport that she had been stuck - not moving - in traffic for 40 minutes and the radio reported the running zebra.
The police finally corralled and escorted the suspect to safety, and the traffic resumed as normal around 8pm.
Watch the chase!
