Upon the officer’s arrival at the 200 block of Mount Laurel Road, the donkeys fled towards Memorial Field and a pursuit ensued.
The following report is on file with the Mt. Laurel Police Department:
At 9 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10, Mt. Laurel Police officers were dispatched to investigate the report of a group of suspicious donkeys loitering behind a residence on the 200 block of Mt. Laurel Road.
Police say that when officers arrived, the officers located four “unruly” donkeys that had escaped from their enclosure.
Upon seeing the officers, police say the donkeys fled towards Memorial Field and a pursuit ensued.
After what officers describe as a long (slow) chase, police say the donekys were ultimately corralled.
“While in custody, the donkeys refused to provide their names and addresses, but a thorough investigation revealed where they reside,” Mt. Laurel Police wrote in a post on their Facebook page.
Police say the donkeys were eventually returned to their home unharmed.
