Photos show a man with a calming gun trying to approach the animal in a field before it starts running past a police car.

The zebra caused a rear-end collision on the A20, but there were no injuries.

They finally shot and it died.

In December last year, four zebras escaped from a circus in Dresden and caused a police chase in which an officer was injured and one of the animals was dead.

Police initially said that all four zebras were captured and returned to the circus, but it later turned out that one of them had died of stress.

One of the officers was injured when a zebra kicked him.
