8 donkeys in jail for eating plants, destroying flower pots

Eight donkeys walked free from Orai District Jail on Monday after serving a three-day sentence for feasting on plants and destroying flower pots placed outside the prison gates for a ‘Swachh Bharat’ project.

Their deed, in which other animals were also allegedly involved, cost the jail administration a loss of “Rs 50,000”.

The donkeys were handed over to their owner after the latter gave an affidavit promising they would never be seen around the prison building again, said the jail administration, adding that they locked the animals in a room inside the prison premises “to teach a lesson” to owners who leave their animals loose.
