Florida pet zebra fatally shot by owner after escaping its home

CALLAHAN, Fla. A pet zebra escaped from a Florida home and was shot and killed by its owner, who wasn't licensed to own the animal, authorities say.

News outlets report the Nassau County Sheriff's Office says the zebra, named Shadow, injured itself somehow while escaping Wednesday in the town of Callahan.

Neighbors told WTLV-TV that the zebra was cornered by the owner and killed as authorities responded to the scene.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigators say the owner didn't have a valid captive wildlife license. Authorities didn't immediately release person's identity.

No other exotic animals were found on the property and the commission is trying to determine how the zebra escaped.

1. I hope the owner pays for not having a license and for animal abuse.
