A young zebra named Sero made a daring escape from Seoul Children's Grand Park Zoo in South Korea on Thursday afternoon.

The two-year-old zebra managed to break through the wooden fencing of its pen and wandered around the city for three hours.

Pictures and videos of the incident were widely shared online.

Sero was seen exploring residential areas and even poking its nose into garbage bins. Despite efforts from police, fire officials, and zoo staff, the zebra couldn't be captured.

Eventually, officials used a safety fence to trap Sero in a narrow alleyway and return it to the zoo.

Seoul Children's Grand Park Zoo is home to over 400 animals of 38 different species, including monkeys, donkeys, and Korean dogs.
