Two amorous donkeys which were separated because of an outcry over their lovemaking have been reunited at a zoo in Poland. The two amorous donkeys were separated because of an outcry over their lovemaking but have been reunited at a zoo in Poland. The couple, together for 10 years, got into trouble when mothers expressed outrage that children had to witness their mating.
Local conservative official Lydia Dudziak took up their cause and persuaded the director of the zoo in Poznan to have the animals put in separate pens. But the zoo acknowledged making a mistake and said the donkeys are now again in one pen. “It was never our intention for any animals to feel uncomfortable because of their natural behaviours,” the zoo said in a statement. The interruption of the longstanding romance turned into a national news item in Poland and nearly 7000 people signed a petition to have them reunited. In their decade together, Napoleon and Antosia have produced six offspring.
