Sadie the Donkey Gets Loose Outside WXIN

A donkey named Sadie was reunited with her owner Thursday after getting loose outside WXIN, the Fox affiliate in Indianapolis.

The station reported on Sadie during the 4 p.m. newscast, showing video of the donkey running around outside WXIN’s headquarters in the snow. Animal Control was called, but three officers who responded were not able to corral Sadie, who escaped into some nearby fields.

“I even sacrificed my apple to help lure Sadie in,” Walt Maciborski said in his report. “She wasn’t going for it.”

Animal Control eventually gave up the chase. But later in the night, a big red trailer — with Sadie inside — pulled into the WXIN parking lot. Volunteers from the Hearts and Hoofs Equine Ministry drove from nearby Monrovia to rescue Sadie after seeing WXIN’s early afternoon report.

Watch the WXIN report after the jump.
