Illinois officer who rescued donkey on I-90 tells her story

A donkey was found wandering Wednesday in the middle of I-90 near Arlington Heights Road, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office said.

The donkey, named Dusty, escaped a trailer just before noon. He was purchased that day to be part of a petting zoo.

“I am in the middle of the expressway with a donkey,” a Cook County Sheriff’s officer can be heard saying on bodycam video.

The donkey was reunited with its owner shortly after being found by the officer.

The donkey did not suffer any injuries.
