Super cute! Is it legal to own? I'd never thought about it...

Zebras are in fact perfectly legal to own.

I think because they are an exotic hunting lodge also they pull the babies.

I would guess to try to get it to bond with humans instead of its mother to try to keep the wild behavior in check. First step toward domestication is to be raised by humans and bond with humans.

One species of zebra is illegal to own. The Grevy's Zebra is on the endangered species list. They are the ones with the big round ears. This is not a Grevy's Zebra.

The Grant's Zebras are the most plentiful in Africa. This looks like a Grants. There are no laws concerning raising them.

They are separated from their dam so they will be gentle and easy to train and handle. Many exotics are bottle raised for that reason.
