CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. – A zebra died due to the extreme cold in Carroll County.
Sherriff Tobe Leazenby told WLFI one of two zebras on the Pittsburg property died as a result of the cold.
Leazenby said investigators checked the scene, and the property met standards for outside animals, making shelter, food and water available. Investigators said it appeared the zebra got stuck in the fence and couldn’t get free.
A woman who posted a photo of the zebras said the shelter was “a carport with open ends.” Her photo of the zebras showed them out in the cold without a blanket.
The property also has kangaroos, but Leazenby told WLFI that the kangaroos were inside a shelter.
The incident remains under investigation.
