It’s not a joke. A man, a zebra and a parrot are in a truck.
Jerald Reiter was arrested after failing a sobriety test after police were called to a bar where a man was spotted in the parking lot of a bar with a baby zebra and a parrot riding shotgun.
The two exotic animals are pets of Reiter’s and he was just taking the pets for a ride because they like the truck. Reiter also claims that he sometimes takes the animals into the bar who’s parking lot he was in.
Iowa has dangerous animal laws but neither the zebra or the macaw parrot are considered under that law and can be kept as pets.
