A county judge in Arkansas is in serious condition after police say he was attacked Sunday by a pet zebra reportedly owned by his father.
Searcy Police Sgt. Steve Hernandez told The Daily Citizen that police were called to White County District Judge Mark Derrick’s home Sunday after the judge was attacked by the animal. Court clerk Misty Perkins said the judge suffered eye and arm injuries.
KATV.com reported that though it is illegal to have a wild animal in the city, there is a grandfather clause that, in this case, allowed the animal on the property. Neighbors in the town, northeast of Little Rock, told the station that the judge’s family would occasionally host petting zoos and have housed exotic animals for years.
So many questions. Do these people live at the zoo?? No?? Then WHY IN ALL THE HELL do they have a zebra in their home???
