TUXTLA GUTIERREZ, Mexico (AP) - A Mexican donkey has been freed
from jail after doing time for acting like a -- you know what.
The Televisa network on Wednesday showed "Blacky" gobbling
food from a bucket after spending three days in a jail that
normally holds people for public drunkenness and other
Blacky was jailed for biting and kicking two men near a ranch
outside Tuxtla Gutierrez, the capital of Chiapas state.
Officials freed the donkey after its owner paid a fine of $36
and the $115 hospital bill of the men, who suffered bites to the
chest and a broken ankle. Authorities say he also must pay $480 to
each man for missed work days.
