NEW YORK -- It sounds like a scene from one of the animated Madagascar films.

A runaway zebra and Shetland pony are back home after trying to make a break for it in the Big Apple.

The wild duo was spotted running around Staten Island.

Razzi, the zebra, and Casper, the pony, are best buds by all accounts. Razzi follows Casper everywhere.

So when their owner left a gate open during feeding time, Casper dashed and Razzi followed. For hours the pair managed to escape men with lassos, people, and cars. Some of New York's finest were finally brought in to help in the capture.

By last night, the two were back in their pen at a petting zoo.

Health inspectors are investigating the incident.
