While a weekend away is supposed to be relaxing and stress-free, a woman experienced the opposite after getting kicked by a zebra.

Digital content creator Thobeka Penny Mbili shared on her TikTok account (@penny_mbili) that she suffered a leg injury after encountering the striped animal while vacationing at Cradle Moon Lakeside Game Lodge near Johannesburg.

At the beginning of the video, Thobeka shows herself limping with a bandaged leg. The clip then cuts to the woman standing behind the zebra. She noted that she "was trying to be nice and get closer to the zebra" until it kicked her.
