Biker races escaped zebra in Florida

America, land of the free (zebras) and home of the brave (bikers)

Why did the zebra cross the road? Because there was a zebra crossing... We’ll show ourselves out.

A Florida biker came across an unusual jaywalker recently, in the form of an escaped zebra.

The biker, who vlogs under the name of Rookie Rebel, shared a video of the animal running riot on a busy road in Tampa.

After a brief race with Rookie’s CBR300R, the Zebra darts into a housing estate where police hedge it in.

‘I didn’t know we had those in Florida,’ exclaims the rider to a bystander, before wishing the police luck and continuing on his ride.
