COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The circus came to town Friday, and a few wayward animals put on their own show.

Four zebras and three horses from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus took an unscheduled run on a road outside World Arena, where the circus performed this weekend. Animal handlers chased them for half an hour.

The animals were being walked into the arena to practice when traffic noise spooked the zebras, an official said. They ran, and the horses followed.

A driver block the animals, which were recaptured unharmed, officials said.
