LOOSE DONKEY OUT AND ABOUT WANDERING MARYLAND ROADS
So I think this should be a political piece. But that’s just because this involves a “loose” donkey in the state of Maryland. An unusual coalition came together of police and bystanders a couple weeks ago when a donkey appeared, wandering around loose on a local road. At first police weren’t sure if the reports were true. So just imagine if someone called in a loose donkey report to punk local police. But no, this wasn’t politics. Just an ornery, stubborn ass out for a refreshing stroll. So I suppose the only way this could have been better if it happened in Washington, DC?
BYSTANDERS AND POLICE CORRAL STUBBORN ASS WITH APPLE SLICES
So anyway the unusual coalition was comprised of police, animal control workers and bystanders who happened to be around. Once Maryland State Police realized that reports of the loose donkey were true, they called in backup! The Harford County Sheriff’s Office and animal control officers responded to the call to corral the stubborn critter. He was just out and wandering around in the middle of the road. It’s not as exciting as when police had to use their lunch’s bag of Doritos to lure a loose pig back home. But there are similarities.
STORM WINDS WRECKED FENCE, DONKEY GOES ON MINIATURE PROWL
A propane truck driver driving by pulled over and proffered the donkey some of his apple slices. Evidently, that made the donkey a bit happier. That’s how he was calm enough for local authorities to safely capture the notoriously ornery beast. But even better, this donkey is a miniature! As in, miniature donkey. But don’t knock the little d in D. He’s a 2-year-old ass whose name is Pedro. Evidently, Pedro made good his escape when high winds knocked down a section of fence on his owner’s property. So maybe this really was politics? But how can I say that? Well, it’s just a good movie reference. Vote Pedro! Or maybe, way to pin the donkey?
