    Zebras help Brussels get famous for more than mussels and fries

    Brussels in Belgium is rightly famous for its mussels and fries but people there sometimes get a little tired of that being all the world thinks of when Belgium is mentioned.

    That all changed this afternoon when three zebras escaped from a ranch and decided to take a tour of the extremely busy and crowded city - and its highways. Knowing the city, I cannot imagine the chaos this caused. The visitors immediately went viral, with people sharing warnings.

    The zebras were eventually captured unharmed and now the world is aware that besides mussels, fries and chess cafes (rapidly dying out ) Brussels also has zebra ranches?? Who knew?

    It's a private ranch in the suburb of Vilvoorde apparently. Youtube of the chase at the link. Surreal.

    ETA: Police, firefighters and vets did a great job and the zebras are all safe now and in great shape.
