When you've had enough, you've had enough. And you don't need to be a tiger, lion or even have fearsome teeth for that matter, to stage a rampage.

Take this zebra in China for example, which completely lost it when it decided it had enough of being instructed by a keeper to perform the same old tricks to entertain visitors.

Instead of obeying the keeper's cues at Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou, it turned nasty and gave the audience an unwanted and unscripted performance that would probably change their minds about the animal being a gentle herbivore.

A video, which went viral in China this week, shows the zebra grabbing the keeper's arm with its mouth and dragging him around like a rag doll, reported Shanghaiist yesterday (Jan 31).

The short clip shows the helpless man being dragged away by the zebra when it bolted after a zoo staff appeared with a pole. Two more men joined in to give chase as shouts could be heard in the background.

The video ends abruptly with no indication as to what happened to the zebra and his victim. But Shanghaiist reported that the worker was subsequently freed from the zebra's clutches after two minutes in the final rescue bid.
