Donkey returned to owner after being found in middle of Chicago road

It wasn’t a routine day for a sheriff’s officer after she spotted a donkey meandering along Interstate 90 near Chicago.

Video from a body camera taken on Wednesday shows the bewildered Cook County officer radioing: “There’s a donkey in the middle of I-90.”

The officer then ordered the donkey to “come here, sweetie”.

The video was posted to Facebook, where the Sheriff’s Office said: “Shrek was nowhere to be found… but we did find Donkey yesterday in the middle of I-90.”

The officer asked a motorist to stand with the donkey while she could figure out what to do.

The donkey, who was found to be named Dusty, was eventually returned to its owner after the incident.
