FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a pet donkey that was shot from a roadside in northwest New Mexico.

The Daily Times reports the donkey named Ralph died last month after someone in a vehicle fired two shots at the family pet.

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office says the donkey was in a pasture northeast of Farmington on April 17.

Authorities say a vehicle stopped on the shoulder of County Road 3000 near the residence of the donkey’s owners and fired the gunshots.

Detective Michael Farni says the owners did not see the vehicle but they heard its engine following the shooting.
