Injured baby burro rescued, nursed back to health in Inland Empire

RIVERSIDE COUNTY (KABC) -- Staff at Riverside County Animal Services are nursing a baby burro back to health after it was found lost and injured.

Officials believe the baby burro got separated from her mother and herd sometime this week. She's only a couple days old.

The burro was found Wednesday by Reche Canyon resident Roger Eldridge, who immediately called Riverside County Animal Services.

The animal suffered a laceration in her back area, but she's now been treated and bottle-fed and she's expected to be OK.

She'll be fostered by an animal services staff member until she's healthy and old enough for her next adventure - maybe adoption or a donkey refuge.
