Zany Zebra recovered from back Garden in Shirley Southampton


Police have confirmed that ‪Gilbert‬, the original Zany Zebra, has been found safe and well.

Officers located the colourful fibre glass sculpture in a back garden in the ‪#‎Shirley‬ area of ‪#‎Southampton‬ yesterday evening.

His owners, Marwell Zoo, were informed of the good news and are delighted to have him back so that he will be able to take part in their public art extravaganza, Zany Zebras, which will see a herd of brightly coloured zebras take to the streets of Southampton this summer.

Gilbert had been stolen overnight on Tuesday (May 10) from a pick up truck in Burgess Road.

Enquiries are ongoing to establish how Gilbert came to be in Shirley.
