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 (https://bit.ly/1DJGmNh ) 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.
