Obesity Epidemic Strikes Kid-Friendly Burros
In Spanish, the word "burrito" means "little donkey". The town of Oatman, Arizona, is having a different kind of donkey problem. It seems that one of the key attractions in the old mining town is that a lot of donkeys freely roam the streets. And since every kid who walks by can't resist handing out carrots and other goodies, those asses are now getting very fat.
The Bureau of Land Management is stepping in with a campaign to stop the wonton (oops, wanton) feeding of the animals.
