Two zebras ran loose Saturday night just outside of Sacramento in the city of Carmichael.

One of them ran free for five hours through a neighborhood before authorities were finally able to get control of him.

The zebras' owner was trying to load them into a trailer so they could be taken to a ranch in Oregon. That is when they were spooked by a couple of dogs and took off.

One of the zebras was actually hit by a car during the chase, but it got back up and kept going until he was caught.

Bets checked him out Sunday -and said he appeared to be fine.
