The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office is searching for the owner of a donkey who was found wandering the streets alone.

On Wednesday deputies received reports about the stray donkey in the area of County 17th Street and Avenue A.

The animal was seen wearing a blue harness, however, it had no additional identifying qualities, a YCSO spokesperson said.

The donkey appears to be in good health and now deputies are attempting to locate its owner.

The Yuma County Sheriff’s Posse is currently taking care of the animal but after 14 days it’ll be up for auction.

Anyone with information is urged to call 928-783-4427.
