    Police in New Jersey say they located the owner of a donkey they found roaming the street at night.

    Holmdel Township police found the animal walking down Holmdel Road near Arbor Lane around 1 a.m.

    In a Facebook post Tuesday morning, the Holmdel Township Police Department issued a call for anyone who woke up and realized their "domesticated farm animal" to not be alarmed because it was in their care.

    Police subsequently updated the post announcing the donkey's owner was located.
