The terrifying incident took place just days after a tiger killed a tourist who had scaled a wall to avoid paying an entrance fee.
The employee at Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou, capital of China's Guangdong Province, was then dragged away by the furious animal into the bushes leaving tourists shocked.
In the footage the zebra can be seen attacking the employee near some bushes before it uses its mouth to drag the victim towards the back of the enclosure.

Next three workers at the zoo can be seen chasing the animal with sticks in a last-ditch attempt to save their colleague.
The man named with the surname Li, eventually managed to get away from the zebra after nearly two minutes of being attacked.
Chimelong Safari Park confirmed the incident in a public statement and said Li had only suffered "minor injuries".
It is unclear in reports why the zebra decided to attack the employee.
The park said it would be releasing a video statement from the employee himself in order to prove he was not severely injured and was already back at work.
