In January 2013, three men in Juan de Acosta, Colombia went on a crime spree, in which they stole a 10-year-old donkey named Xavi from his owner, then attempted to use the animal as their getaway vehicle during a heist.
Around 2 a.m., the men broke into a local grocery store and loaded Xavi up with pilfered rum, oil, rice, and cans of sardines. The donkey then sounded the alarm on them... or, rather, he began braying so loudly that the police were alerted. In the end, the thieves were forced to abandon their stolen goods and flee on foot.
So, you can pin a tail on a donkey, but you apparently can’t pin your loot on one and expect to get away with it.
