NORMAN, Okla._The miniature donkey picked up by a Norman police officer has been returned to its owner.

The donkey, named Squishy by Norman officers, was found walking along a rural road Tuesday morning and was given a ride. The officer who picked up Squishy, Officer Kyle Canaan, says he fit perfectly in the backseat. As it turns out, Squishy is actually named Cruz and belongs to a Norman chiropractor.

Matt Spaulding, Cruz’s owner, noticed the donkey was missing when he got home from work Tuesday night. He believes the donkey escaped under the electric wire fence.

Spaulding says Cruz is a retired “basketball donkey” and used to give rides on his back at charity basketball games.
