Blount County investigators closer to arrest in zebra killing case

BLOUNT COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — Blount County investigators are close to figuring out who shot and killed two zebras in Oneonta.

However, the district attorney says they aren’t ready to make an arrest yet.

The zebras were found dead on a family farm in late February. The family considered them pets, and Blount County District Attorney Pamela Casey says shooting pets in the county will not be tolerated.

“There’s a difference between going hunting as a sport and shooting someone’s pet that you know is their pet,” Casey said. “Those zebras were not there to be hunted.”

There is still a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest in the case.
