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.
