Somehow, someway an ass escaped its home in the middle of the night but upon breakfast the owner of the donkey claimed their domesticated animal in Holmdel.

Police in Holmdel began a search when the donkey was spotted wandering around the township.

They spotted the animal walking down Holmdel Road near Arbor Lane around 1:00 AM on Tuesday.

Officers brought it back to headquarters to keep it safe until the owner could be located.

With the donkey back home, all is well on the farmland once more.
