Dogs that killed donkey to be returned to owner

TOWN OF TURTLE, Wis. (AP) -- Two dogs that attacked and killed a miniature donkey near Beloit will be returned to their owner.

The pet donkey named Little E suffered more than 100 puncture wounds when it was attacked in the Town of Turtle. A veterinarian tried to save the donkey with stitches and pain medication, but it died last week.

The Beloit Daily News says neighbors called authorities after they saw the pit bulls attacking the donkey Jan. 31. Rock County Sheriff's Sgt. Jay Wood says the pit bulls' owner faces a misdemeanor charge of dogs causing damage. But, because it's a first offense, the dogs will be returned to her. If there's a second offense, a court could determine the dogs are a nuisance and they could be euthanized.
