A Zebra that escaped from a circus in Germany has been shot dead by police.

The animal was killed after it caused a car crash on the A20 motorway on Wednesday.

No-one was injured in the rear-end collision but police felt the safest option was to euthanise the animal, DW reported.

A police spokesman said: 'The animal was going in the wrong direction on the autobahn from Tessin to Rostock.'

The animal had escaped with another zebra while touring in a circus in Thelkow, east Germany, on Tuesday night.

The second zebra was captured and returned to its owners.

A marksman was pictured holding a tranquilliser gun with one of the animals nearby but it later evaded authorities and was seen dodging police vehicles.

The zebras had kept police officers active all night as they tried to catch them.

Police had tweeted during the incident: 'Warning: escaped zebra in the Tessin/Sanitz area is disrupting traffic.'

Toronto Wolfpack won’t be able to play at home until April but aim to spread the game in Europe and the USAAntagonism in some northern towns towards the Wolfpack will never go away; their being in the top flight for the first time in 2020 could heighten the tension caused by the belief that Canada has no place meddling in rugby league. But it is this kind of myopia away from the pitch that has held back a sport with limitless on-field potential for quite some time.
