When Animals Attack: Texas Mayor Killed In Donkey Attack

Cow attacks? Those crazy Texans have gone one better. From Bossip:

Hollywood Park Mayor William “Bill” Bohlke was killed by his 500-pound donkey in an apparent attack Monday, said Chief Deputy David Soward of the Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office. Soward said the donkey remains on the ranch and an exact cause of death is pending.

“They [donkeys] can become very aggressive, very mean, sometimes triggered by a female in heat,” Soward told the San Antonio Express-News. “We’ll probably never know what triggered it, but it was evident that this particular donkey was involved, based on the evidence at the scene and what we saw on this donkey.”

Did police get the donkey's finger prints?

RM, no, they decided it was too bloody dangerous. Would you volunteer to take fingerprints from a killer donkey?

The mayor was a white man. If the donkey is black, does this make it a racial incident? Expect donkey sanctuaries all over the country being attacked and burnt down.

PS, let's put a statue of the poor mayor and pull that down instead.

P, donkeys are grey, so they can't be racist.
