Odd things have been happening in the last few years, and it has many questioning if the popular movie and board game 'Jumanji' is now happening in real life. It started a few years ago with the pandemic that shut the world down, and then stories of killer wasps began to emerge, followed by giant parachuting spidersThese are all things that can be explained, but in the last few weeks, it seems that the game has started once again. A couple of weeks ago, an elephant escaped the circus and ran through the town of Butte, Montana slowing down traffic, and now more zoo animals are on the loose and stopping traffic, but this time in a different location. 

Zebras Escape and Stop Traffic in Washington

The game of 'Jumanji' continued last week, as four zebras escaped in the state of Washington, and brought traffic to a stop. Last Monday, a trailer pulling zebras was travelling to Montana, when they pulled off the interstate to fix the trailer. It had become loose and the driver wanted to tighten it, but the zebras saw this as an opportunity and escaped the trailer. There were three adult mares, and one filly. They went for a gallop through the streets, disrupting the flow of traffic. Luckily, it was all caught on camera, which you can watch above.

This story comes only a couple of weeks after an elephant, ironically in Montana where the zebras were headed, escaped from the circus and went for a stroll as wellIt appears that the animals have a hidden agenda and are looking for their freedom. The good news is that three of the zebras were caught the same day, with one of the mares escaping for a week. On Sunday, after six days of freedom, Shug, the name of the loose zebra, was finally caught in North Bend. Six days of freedom is a long time, it makes you wonder what Shug got into. The good news is that the animals did not cause any damage, and nobody was harmed from their romp down the road.

With elephant and zebra off the list, what is next?
