Canaan responded after a woman found the animal on the loose. She told local media she had a pen to keep the donkey in but no way to get it there.

The officer tells TV station KFOR the animal fit perfectly in his vehicle. He says, "I rolled the window down for it."

The woman who found Squishy says if an owner doesn't come forward, she plans to keep the donkey.
