Donkey Jailed for Assault!

Sometimes we get very serious on this blog and sometimes we get very silly.

The great part is that you never know which! Surprise!

Here is a story from Mexico and although it's true, you can decide if it is serious or silly!

A donkey has been locked up by police in Mexico for assault and battery.

The animal, known locally as a burro, bit and kicked two men near a ranch in Chiapas state, police said.

It is now being kept in a cell that normally holds people arrested for public drunkenness and other disturbances.

Officer Sinar Gomez said the donkey will remain behind bars at the police station in Tuxtla Gutierrez until its owner agrees to pay the men's medical bills.

"Around here, if someone commits a crime they are jailed," Gomez said - "no matter who they are."
The owner, Mauro Gutierrez, said that he would try to reach a friendly arrangement to pay the men's bills, estimated at $420 (£200).

The victims said the donkey bit Genaro Vazquez, 63, in the chest on Sunday and then kicked 52-year-old Andres Hernandez as he tried to come to the rescue, fracturing his ankle.

"All of a sudden, the animal was on top of us like it was rabid," said Mr Hernandez.

Police said it took six men to control the enraged burro.

Chiapas police have thrown animals into the cells before, including a bull that devoured corn crops and destroyed two wooden vending stands in March.

In 2006, a dog was locked up for 12 days after biting someone.

Now we don't know about you but we here at "Perspective" consider assault a very serious matter and don't look upon it as silly in any way, shape or form!

And don't tell me; "The law is an ass!"

(Sorry, you have to be semi-educated to get that one!)
