The Mount Laurel Police Department said that they were called around 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, to investigate the report of a group of suspicious donkeys loitering behind a residence on the 200 block of Mount Laurel Road.

When officers arrived, they located four unruly donkeys that had escaped from their enclosure. Upon seeing the officers, the donkeys fled towards Memorial Field and a pursuit ensued.

“After a long chase, the gang of burros were ultimately corralled and temporarily detained. While in custody, the donkeys refused to provide their names and addresses, but a thorough investigation revealed where they reside,” the police said on Facebook.

The donkeys were eventually returned to their home unharmed. Police posted a video of the chase on Facebook, where it went viral.
