So A Guy Walks Into A Bar With A Zebra And A Macaw

Stop me if you've heard this one before. Unfortunately it isn't a joke.

On May 20th in Dubuque, Iowa, police were alerted by concerned passersby to a miniature zebra and a macaw locked in a pickup truck sitting in the parking lot of the Dog House Bar and Lounge.

Reiter says he did not intend to leave his companions in the truck, as the Dog House had previously allowed the animals entrance. However, the Dog House declined admission that evening as they were serving food.
