Zebra Evidence Found at Noah's Ark


Evidence, the zebra found last spring on I-75 in Butts County, made his public debut today at Noah's Ark in Locust Grove. The parking lot was completely filled within 15 minutes of the opening and everyone flocked to see Evidence.

Evidence and his new "herd mate" Grace, were peacefully grazing and taking it all in. From time to time, Evidence could be heard crying for "Pop", who quickly rushed to assure the young zebra that all was ok. Charlie "Pop"Hedgecoth has been the primary caregiver for Evidence since the Animal Rehabilitation Center was called in the spring to see if they could assist the seriously injured zebra found grazing on the Georgia interstate.

Noah's Ark has provided Evidence and other exotic animals with a permanent home and love. While it costs about $10,000 per month to feed the animals, Noah's Ark runs completely on donations.

Donations to help Evidence and the other animals who call Noah's Ark home can be made at www.noahs-ark.org/index.html. The habitat is open to the public Tuesday thru Saturday from noon until 3 pm.
