Jim Planck is reporting in The Daily Mail according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the owner of Zula, the plains zebra found dead in Greene County Mon., May 16, was not required to have a license. The animal escaped in the Palenville area last week, and it is believed the zebra fell to its death from a steep cliff. A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Tuesday owner Richard Myer is not a USDA licensee. She said the zebra was privately owned, which is not regulated by the Animal Welfare Act. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has now gone on record expressing concern about the incident, and is encouraging the USDA to look into the matter. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
