You have the right to remain silent, Donkey ...

I can actually hear Shrek in my head ... this seriously has me in splits!!! If you commit a crime in Mexico you go to jail - no matter who you are, even a donkey!!

A donkey has been locked up by police in Mexico for assault and battery. The animal, known locally as a burro, bit and kicked two men near a ranch in Chiapas state, police said. It is now being kept in a cell that normally holds people arrested for public drunkenness and other disturbances.

Officer Sinar Gomez said the donkey will remain behind bars at the police station in Tuxtla Gutierrez until its owner agrees to pay the men's medical bills. Chiapas police have thrown animals into the cells before, including a bull that devoured corn crops and destroyed two wooden vending stands in March. In 2006, a dog was locked up for 12 days after biting someone. (Telegraph)
