CLEVELAND (AP) - A zebra that's been on the lam for the last five months in southeastern Tennessee has been caught.

WRCB-TV reported on Thursday that Zeke the zebra was back at home in Bradley County.

Zeke's owner, Ronald Price, said the animal escaped from his farm in Cleveland late last year by jumping a high fence.

For weeks afterward, police dispatchers took calls of reported sightings around the community - near homes, businesses and even a highway.

Price said a couple of his neighbors were finally able to corral the zebra and put him in a pen before returning him home.
