Mayor was a Republican?
Those donkeys are great for keeping livestock safe.
Killed by a donkey? The mayor must have been a republican.
May he rest in peace.
Accident my Ass !
It was manslaughter at best...
What’s the next headline, “Democratic mayor killed by 8,000-lb elephant” . . . ?

a donkey can kick any moose ass.
Ok I don’t get it, how exactly does a Donkey keep livestock safe, please explain.
Donkeys will go after and kill coyotes, and even mountain lions.
They are tougher than they look.
Nah! The best we can hope for is “8000 Pound Elephant Takes A Dump On Wasserman-Schultz”.
Hooves and teeth and sheer determination. There is a video floating around of a donkey swinging a mountain lion around by it's tail.
May-December romance gone bad?
And it is amazing how quickly, hard and accurately they can kick. I learned a long time ago to walk out of range when passing behind a donkey (or horse).
The first donkey I bought tried his best to kill a group of steers,the only

I have had good luck with later donkeys
Teeth and hooves will easily kill anything 200 lbs or less that walks the earth.
“There is no love lost between the Equidae and Canidae families. Donkeys, especially jennies, are very protective of animals they graze with and will run at, chase,stomp, kick and even kill any canine they encounter. They are also used to guard cattle from jaguars in Belize.”
