A Norman, OK, police officer picked up a wandering miniature donkey in his police cruiser in response to a concerned citizen's call. Now the animal has been reunited with his owner, reports KFOR.
The donkey, nicknamed 'Squishy' by Officer Kyle Canaan, belongs to Dr. Matt Spaulding, a Norman Chiropractor. The little guy's real name is Cruz.
Dr. Spaulding said he noticed Cruz was missing when he got home from work Tuesday night, and was relieved when he learned the missing donkey, pictured riding in the back of Officer Canaan's car on social media, was his.
"I don't know how they got him in there," Spaulding said. "That's why they say they called him Squishy. They squished him up in there."
He thinks Cruz somehow escaped underneath an electric wire fence.
The doctor is now thanking the officer and his neighbor who saved his loving friend from the edge of a busy highway.
