A zebra that ran away from a horse riding club in Japan has died in a golf course lake after it was tranquilized.

Police officers and veterinarians had chased the animal around the course near Toki city in the central Gifu prefecture for hours.

It ran into the lake shortly after it was shot with a tranquillizer dart.

The animal died despite being pulled out within minutes. Officers said it had likely drowned and that its heart had stopped.

The two-year-old male zebra had reportedly escaped from the riding club, where it had been reared, on Tuesday evening.

Local reports said it got out by pushing up the wooden fence of its paddock.

On Wednesday morning police received reports of a zebra running along a highway.

They quickly tracked it to the Toki International Golf Course, where veterinarians and police tried to catch it.

It ran into a lake shortly after being darted, foreign media reports.
