"When you get a call from a resident saying that they just saw a donkey in their yard you kinda wonder what they might have really seen," the post said. "Then another call comes in so officers went into the woods to find this mare donkey wandering around."

The post said officers were able to round up the loose donkey with help from some "wonderful caring neighbors."

Police said they are trying to find the donkey's owner so the animal can be returned home.
