Donkey Dominance

We paid a visit to our favorite local wild burro herd this weekend. One of them was a little ornery. He chased the other guy all over the field, biting and kicking him.

These guys live in the mountains south of Redlands, California. These are a lot of them here--several dozen at least and probably many more-- in a few different roaming herds. No one knows how they got here, but they have been living wild in these mountains for generations. One common story claims they are related to the wild asses that live in the Panamints in Death Valley. They are a charming and entertaining local phenomenon; I hope development and progress doesn't make them vanish anytime soon.
