    Who knew donkeys loved to eat orange McLaren supercars? Markus Zahn found it out the hard way when one of the animals chomped down on his beloved motor, which costs Ł220,000. He had left his McLaren 650S Spider by Vitus the donkey’s paddock in Germany, in September 2016. The animal may have mistaken the orange car for a giant carrot when he bit the back of it, damaging the paint and a carbon-fibre piece. The donkey probably thought the car was a carrot on wheels. I’m not mad at him,’ Mr Zahn told Bild. He added: ‘I looked into the...

     youtube.com/watch?v=bVKVB0MImOg After an Intro, Ferde Grofe's 'Grand Canyon Suite', Donkey Theme, starts with a picturesque depiction of pack mules on the trail for the first 8 measures. The second 8 measures of a descending, frenetic theme, don't make programmatic sense, unless there is an explicit visual depiction of a donkey tumbling off the trail. In the third 8 measure section, the donkey's plaintive hee-haw is heard.

    Msgr. Charles Pope 12/22/2015 Nativity animals Question: I was told that the animals in the Christmas Nativity scene have a symbolic meaning. Is this so, and if so what?— Jennifer Ladd, Buffalo, New York Answer: Yes, the traditional animals of the Nativity scene are chosen for a reason. The ox and the donkey are a reference to Isaiah 1:3 which says, “An ox knows its owner, and an ass, its master’s manger; But Israel does not know, my people has not understood.”So, it’s actually rather an unflattering self-accusation we make of our own human family that, in effect, declares the...

    CONROE, Texas - A Houston-area man has been accused of dragging a donkey behind his vehicle as other drivers called 911 to report the apparent animal abuse. Montgomery County jail records show 21-year-old Nasim Irsan was being held Monday on a charge of cruelty to livestock animals. Online jail records do not list bond or an attorney for Irsan, who was booked Saturday night into the jail in Conroe. Deputies responding to reports of a pickup truck dragging a donkey located the moving vehicle and rescued the animal, which had a rope around its neck. The rope was tied to...

    Biologists had originally thought zebra and donkey chromosomes to be incompatible.A rare but adorable cross-breed was introduced to the world this week at a zoo in Reynosa, Mexico. Khumba is the lovechild of Rayas, a female zebra, and Ignacio, a blue-eyed albino donkey. That makes Khumba a zonkey, one of only a few in the world. Though there are now living specimens of zonkeys at zoos in the U.S., Japan, China and elsewhere, biologists had originally thought zebra and donkey chromosomes were incompatible. But apparent genetic incongruity didn't stop Rayas and Ignacio from trying. According to WTVY, the two visited...

    Wal-Mart recalled donkey meat – a delicacy in northern China – because of contamination. If the discovery of “pink slime” in American hamburgers and horsemeat in European ones made you squeamish, read no further. Wal-Mart has just recalled donkey meat products from some of its stores in China because tests have found them to be contaminated with fox meat. Donkey is a delicacy in northern China. Fox is not. Fox meat smells rank, according to those who know. But it is cheap (less than 50 US cents a pound) because Chinese farmers who raise foxes for their fur have no...

    Afghanistan has some of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the world, and a high concentration of donkeys. Enter the maternity saddle -- a new invention that promises to carry women in labor across Afghanistan's difficult terrain so they can get the medical care they need. The British charity HealthProm and designer Peter Muckle developed the inflatable donkey saddle to ease the burden on women about to give birth in remote areas of Afghanistan. The lack of suitable transport in mountainous areas leads many pregnant women to opt against heading to health centers in favor of giving birth...
