A despicable act:

A farm with llamas, lemurs and camels has become to scene of a callous act of animal murder.

Zambi the zebra was shot dead as he grazed on lush green pastures in rural Texas, USA, earlier this month, it was alledged.

MSNBC.com reports:

Joshua Romano and four friends were swimming in a creek but had to leave because of rain. They spotted the zebra as they were driving down a road near the farm. That’s when Romano pulled out a deer rifle and shot Zambi dead. The animal was worth about US$10,000.

Romano’s friends tried to prevent him from shooting the zebra, and the driver sped up to make the shooting more difficult.

Meanwhile, there was an unrelated incident in the same US state, where another native African mammal decided to have some vengeance on the humans:

A tiger mauled zoo keeper in the Texas city of San Antonio.

The zookeeper, who specializes in large cats, was flown to a hospital and was in critical condition, a hospital spokeswoman said. The keeper was in his 20s.

The male Sumatran tiger was 4 or 5 years…The zoo was closed after the attack
