FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- A man in Arkansas tells KFSM he wasn't expecting to hear police sirens right outside his door last week and certainly wasn't expecting to see what the officers were after.

A donkey had run into his yard, quickly followed by an police and animal control.

"I heard a siren go off right in front of the house. I stood up and looked out the window, and there was a cop car blocking my driveway with its lights on. As I am looking out the window processing all of this, a white flash runs past my front window. Then there was an animal control guy running with a rope to catch it," said Erick Eby to KFSM.

The officers had been after the donkey for a while.

"He was really hoofin' it," said Eby. "Only in Arkansas."
