Officers in the seventh district of New Orleans saw stripes last night in the form of three Zebras.

The Zebras, officers say were spotted grazing on Lake Forest Boulevard as officers were headed to routine patrol.

The Seventh District shared photos of the animals on their Facebook page.

“First, we had puppies, then kittens, then alligators and even a baby hawk….but these four-legged friends take the cake!!!” the Facebook post states.

According to WGNO, the zebras are not escaped but possibly part of The UniverSoul Circus which is setting up in the area.
