Police captured two zebras that managed to get loose and escape from a circus in Philadelphia on Sunday, authorities said.
The animals could be seen running through the streets, dodging traffic as they eluded police for an hour and a half.
The zebras were eventually "safely corralled with no injuries," a UniverSoul Circus spokesperson said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.
After their capture, police joked the black and white animals were already sporting "old-timey prisoner getup."
Some Twitter users were rooting for the Philly zebras and were saddened when the animals were captured.
Others saw a lighter side to the story.
An investigation is currently underway by UniverSoul Circus, the company said, to determine how the animals were able to escape.
