Check out this description from the Gazette:
Dubuque police found the trio in the cab of (Jarald) Reiter’s pickup truck outside the Dog House Lounge at 1646 Asbury Road. Police charged Reiter with operating while intoxicated.Reiter was arrested and a friend came to take home the animals. Next time, he should take a cue from this guy and get a baby stroller or baby clothes for his pets so that they don't look quite so out of place when they're out in public!
Reiter and Vickey Teter own the zebra and parrot as pets but the couple often takes the exotic animals out for a spin. “We take them for car rides and they go and they get the mail with me. They are a big part of the family,” Teter said. That’s why Reiter thought nothing of taking his beloved zebra and parrot with him when he went to the bar.
The bartender did think something of it and told the trio to leave, according to Reiter. Reiter said other bar patrons were shocked to see the animals and started snapping pictures. He believes one of those onlookers called police.
The couple understands why the whole thing may have seemed odd to people who are not used to being around exotic animals. “It’s not everyday you see somebody that’s got a zebra or a parrot in the house,” said Teter, “and who knows tomorrow what might be in our house.”
