MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., Dec. 14 (UPI) -- A New Jersey police department said officers used their patrol cars to round up "a group of suspicious donkeys loitering behind a residence."
The Mount Laurel Police Department posted a video to Facebook showing officers on foot and slowly driving their cars alongside the donkeys to guide them back to their enclosure.
The Facebook post said officers were called to the scene about 9 a.m. Saturday on a report of "a group of suspicious donkeys loitering behind a residence."
"When officers arrived, sure enough, they located four unruly donkeys that had escaped from their enclosure," police wrote on Facebook.
"Upon seeing the officers, the donkeys fled towards Memorial Field and a pursuit ensued. After a long (slow) chase the gang of burros were ultimately corralled and temporarily detained. While in custody, the donkeys refused to provide their names and addresses, but a thorough investigation revealed where they reside. The donkeys were eventually returned to their home unharmed. Just another day in the life of a Mount Laurel Police Officer."
