Ross said the zebra almost ran him over. He also said there is a resident who lives a mile or so away who keeps zoo animals. 

Before the zebra ended up in Ross' yard, it was involved in a crash with a pickup truck. 

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office, the zebra ran into the side of a truck and broke the mirror. 

The Sheriff's Office aviation unit responded and they located the zebra, which was corralled by deputies and employees of the owner.
