Donkey Derby Deemed Delightful

It looked more like a comedy than a race as these donkeys dashed off to the finish line. The fifth annual Fisher Community Fair attracted hundreds to the annual donkey derby. It's hard to tell who had a harder time trying to make it to the finish line, the riders or the animals. (No jockeys, these riders).

Up to fifty people participated in the event. The donkeys were brought in from a farm in Wisconsin and one organizer says they're trained to pay more attention to their trainer than to who's on their back. In fact, the trainer says they are just not used to having riders to carry.
