[November 29, 2012]  NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City can be like a zoo sometimes, but a zebra running wild through the streets is not something you ordinarily see.

The Staten Island Advance reports ( that a zebra and a miniature horse were spotted trotting through a shopping center parking lot Wednesday morning in Staten Island. 

Metropolitan Drape & Blind owner Zachary Osher saw the runaway equines and shared his video with the newspaper. He says the animals ran down a street and narrowly escaped being hit by a car. He says two men in dark suits ran after them with lassoes.

A police spokesman says the animals were corralled and returned to a petting zoo.
