The West Covina, California Police Department answered a rather strange call on Thursday at 12:30 a.m. Authorities said there was a report of a herd of animals walking through the streets. Officials posted on their Facebook page that a donkey led more than a dozen sheep and goats on a stroll through a suburban West Covina neighborhood east of Los Angeles.
The animals escaped their owners’ property in neighboring Valinda through an unsecured gate. The owner was contacted and took the herd was eventually corralled with the help of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and taken home. No injuries were reported to any of the animals or officers.
The Facebook post concluded, “When a police officer reaches the end of his/her career, most of them will say ‘I’ve seen it all.’ Well, let’s add one more rare call for service to that list.”
