A donkey is doing time in southern Mexico for assault and battery.
The animal was locked up at a local jail that normally holds people for public drunkenness and other disturbances after it bit and kicked two men near a ranch in Chiapas state, police said Monday.
Officer Sinar Gomez said the donkey will remain behind bars until its owner agrees to pay the men’s medical bills.
“Around here, if someone commits a crime they are jailed,” Gomez said — “no matter who they are.”

Of course these stories strike us as funny because human notions of responsibility and rights simply don’t apply to animals.
