Police capture escaped zebra in downtown Atlanta

Workers try to contain a zebra that broke loose from the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Thursday, Feb. 18, 2010, in downtown Atlanta. The animal made its way through downtown to the interstate highway that cuts through the center of the city. Police cruisers blocked off all southbound lanes and were able to herd the zebra over to the right shoulder and off an entrance ramp, said Georgia Department of Transportation spokeswoman Monica Luck.
