Cop Gives Runaway Donkey A Ride

Cop Gives Runaway Donkey A Ride

When Police Officer Kyle Canaan answered the call about a disturbance on a busy road in Norman, Oklahoma, USA, he was faced with an unusual challenge. What do do with a lost donkey? Good Samaritan Robin Strader had saved the donkey, pulling the wandering animal off the highway and away from traffic.

Strader told Officer Canaan that the donkey could stay at her place a few miles away, but her car wasn’t big enough to transport him. That’s when Canaan suggested he transport the donkey they nicknamed Squishy.

“Our officers encounter unexpected things every day while on-duty,” the City of Norman, OK Police Department wrote in the caption accompanying the photo on Facebook. “This morning, Officer Kyle Canaan responded to a call regarding a donkey on the loose in the 8100 block of 120th Avenue NE. To ensure the safety of the animal, he helped transport the donkey to a nearby home for safe-keeping until its owner could be located. It’s not every day that you see a donkey in the back seat of a police car!”

As funny as it must have been for passers-by to see, it wasn’t all fun and games for the driver. Officer Canaan told KFOR that Squishy did his business in the back seat of his squad car. “I must have got him right after breakfast, because there was a lot.” Oopsy. As for Squishy, he’s happily resting at Strader’s property, and if no one claims him, Strader says the friendly donkey is welcome to stay permanently at her home.

Hats off to Ms. Strader and Officer Canaan for taking the time and having the compassion to save this donkey from an almost certain disaster on the highway! Are their actions inspiring you to do something kind for animals today? Well, you needn't wait until you come upon a stray donkey.
