    Longtime Cambria resident Michelle Sherman has been observing the zebras on Hearst Ranch in San Simeon for years. She came across baby zebra “Lite Randy Ruckus” running around with his family on the ranch, which surrounds Hearst Castle in Central California, and she shot some video of him.

    The ranch is right next to Highway 1. Newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst had a big zoo at Hearst Castle back in the day. When he died, some of the zebras escaped and have been thriving on the Hearst property for years.
