Word: "Wandering free"
On April 8, a wounded zebra was found eating grass along I-75 in Butts County. Nine days later, a pig was found wandering the median on I-75 in Cobb County.
"The Department of Natural Resources called us Tuesday morning and said they had a zebra fall out of the back of a truck, and from there he was struck by a car and he was standing there on the side of the highway eating grass,"
-Charlie Hedgecloth, of the Locust Grove animal rescue group Noahâ€™s Ark, as quoted by WTVM-TV in Columbus on April 11.
â€œhmm... you think someone would have noticed that their zebra was missing...â€

â€œThe pig, reportedly wandering free in the median, was later tethered to a guardrail until two Marietta police officers arrived â€” one of whom ended up using his Taser gun to subdue it.â€
