Norman officer gives lost donkey ride home
NORMAN — A donkey found wandering along a rural road might have been looking for seasonal employment at the nearest nativity scene when a Norman police officer took her into custody.
“It took some maneuvering to get her in there,” said Officer Kyle Canaan, who determined the quickest and safest way to get the donkey off the road was to give her a ride in his patrol car.
Canaan was dispatched Tuesday morning to the 8100 block of 120th Avenue Northeast after a resident saw the animal ambling along the road and called the police. The resident had a pen to contain the donkey, but no way to get her there.
The police officer said the donkey fit handily in the back of the patrol car and made the short trip to the pen without incident.
