Randy was the father zebra who shared his pasture in Petrolia with his mate, Josephine and their offspring L.C. For many years, locals have delighted in the sight of them frolicking in their large and scenic home. The 3 were very tame and would happily gallop up to the fence to greet visitors. Randy, tragically, was found shot and killed in his home pasture on Saturday, May 13, 2017. UPDATE: JOSEPHINE GAVE BIRTH TO A NEW BABY FOAL JUNE 14! NEW HAPPINESS ALL AROUND!
