Escaped Oakland zebras return to circus

Two zebras got loose from a circus on Friday in Oakland and were seen running along a major East Oakland Road near the O.co Coliseum, police said today.

A police officer reported seeing the zebras at 4:31 p.m. running north on Hegenberger Road near Edes Avenue, Officer J. Moore said.

Circus personnel were able to herd them back, Moore said.

The UniverSoul Circus opened a show in Oakland on March 5 at 633 Hegenberger Road, which is near where the zebras were spotted. The show wraps in Oakland on Sunday.
