A group of four panels depicting the escape of a zebra from a zoo during an air raid. In the top right-hand corner is a bombed zoo enclosure with a rearing zebra amongst the rubble. The dark town skyline is in the background silhouetted against the brightly lit sky. In the bottom right-hand corner, a raging fire in the zoo grounds is depicted; the zebra flees in the background. In the top left-hand corner, is a deserted street in the darkness with the escaped zebra; the animal is being chased by three firemen.
