CATSKILL, N.Y. (AP) — The owner of a lost zebra is offering a $1,000 reward for its safe return in New York.

Richard Myer tells the Times Union of Albany ( ) his 5-month-old zebra named Zula was spooked by a branch hitting a barn Thursday at Bailiwick Animal Park and Riding Stables in Catskill, 30 miles south of the capital.

Myer spent Sunday driving on back roads in wooded areas around Catskill looking for Zula, who is about the size of a large pony.

He says: "You can't miss it. You really can't."

Local volunteers have joined the search, and Myer says police also have been on the lookout for the wayward zebra.
