Hold the jokes about who’s leading who… donkey rescued by deputy today

(Lander, Wyo.) – The Fremont County Sheriff’s Department had another rescue today, this time involving a four-legged critter. A donkey that got loose was in the area of the county shops on north 287 out of Lander, but it was captured by the folks at Creative Energies. Deputy Foutz arrived at the scene to help get the animal out of harms way and lead it to safety and returned to its owner.
