(Staten Island, NY) People in a New York City suburb thought the circus was in town when they spotted a zebra and a pony running through the streets.
The animals were racing through a shopping center parking lot in Staten Island and then stopped traffic when they crossed a street.
The animals eventually stopped to nibble on plants at an outdoor garden shop.
There was no circus in town.
The zebra and pony escaped from a petting zoo.
Their owners rounded up the animals and took them back to the zoo.
The two were not hurt and did not cause any damage.
