Zebra Owner Demands Equine Justice


The owner of a zebra taken from its home as part of an Emory University prank is demanding justice.

ZebraCurtis Jackson, who lives one mile away from Emory’s Oxford campus in Newton County, GA, plans to press for theft and trespassing charges against the people who kidnapped his zebra, named Barcode. The 800-lb equine was found on the third floor of the university’s Seney Hall building last Wednesday morning by campus security. Barcode was unharmed and was returned later that morning to his owner by animal control personnel.

Jackson expressed surprise that Barcode wasn’t hurt when he was walked to the campus, but vows that the people behind the stunt be held responsible. An anonymous emailer claimed to be one of the persons involved in the zebra-napping, stating that it was a prank.

Emory University once had a “rich tradition” of quadruped pranks dating back to the 1930s. As recently as the 1960s, a cow was found in Seney Hall but until this most recent incident the pranks had not been repeated.
