Make a Prediction


On 31 August 2021, five zebras escaped from a private farm in Maryland, USA. They are not expected to go far, according to the Washington Post: "Experts said the zebras are probably sticking fairly close to the edges of their home — an 80-acre farm off Duley Station Road in Upper Marlboro". On 9 September, 2021, Rodney Taylor, chief of the Prince George County’s animal services division, said "it could take as long as a week for the zebras to be caught".

On 14 October, Maryland's Natural Resources Police reported that a zebra had been found dead in an illegal snare trap on 16 September. Additionally, it was corrected that only three zebras had escaped, not five. The wherabouts of the remaining zebras is unknown, or not publicly released yet.
