According to Chief Taylor with Prince George’s County Animal Control, three zebras escaped from a private farm on Thursday or Friday.
The farm is at the corner of Bellefield Road and Duley Station Road in Upper Marlboro, Md.
Video taken by FOX 5 viewer Paul Curling last Thursday in Upper Marlboro, Md. showed a few zebras behind his house. His daughter first saw them.
"I thought my mind was playing tricks on me," said Layla Curling.
Police got at least one call about the zebras back on Aug. 31 where the caller said they saw the animal running in front of a vehicle along Croom Road. More zebra sightings were reported on Sept. 7.

"I thought maybe you know she’s been in the house too long or she’s having a fever or something. So she says, I’m gonna send you a video," Paul Curling said. "One of my first thoughts was well maybe somebody had a birthday party and they painted some horses for some four-year-olds or something because there’s no way in the world some zebras could be here in upper Marlboro just roaming around like deers."
Anyone with information on the zebras is asked to call Prince George's County Animal Control.
