Sinkole Burro Rescued Nov 21 2019

Riverside County Animal Services made sure this burro made it out of a strange predicament in an area of Riverside County east of Highgrove. The burro, apparently, slipped into a sinkhole, presumably in the early morning hours on Nov. 21 (2019). The incident happened, also presumably, due to recent rains that could have softened up some dirt. Animal Services officers Christopher Peck, Lorena Barron-Lopez and Kyle Stephens received excellent assistance from a construction crew from Inland Erosion Control Inc. The crew members created a makeshift dirt ramp and the burro eventually walked out on its own and did not appear to be injured. It's uncertain how long the critter was in the hole. Also uncertain is the animal's sex. It may have been a male burro.
