Feral Donkeys near the Trinity River just north of Interstate 20. These donkeys were observed by a group of mountain bikers on a trail ride. The Donkeys are free ranging—there are no uncompromised fences surrounding this public land. The donkeys fled when approached.

This sighting took place inside Dallas city limits approximately 9 miles/14 kilometers south of downtown.

  1. Where did they come from & how long have they been there? Another amazing find, Chris.

  2. How do you know that they were not being herded there by someone who just wants to get grazing on the public dime? It is not uncommon for people to graze their animals on public property until they get called on it.

    • No way to know for sure, David. My familiarity with the area and the article I linked in another comment swayed my opinion.
