February 6 ~ Photo A Day #37

This is Catnip the burro. We adopted her from the Sheldon Wildlife Refuge in Northern Nevada almost 7 years ago. She’s from a feral herd of burros that were removed from the Refuge in order to maintain a healthy herd amount.

Feral horses and burros can over populate an area leaving the land bare of food for themselves and other wildlife that depend on at forage.

What’s the difference between a burro and a donkey? Nothing physically; they are the same animal. The terms are used to distinguish where they originated. A donkey is domestically bred while a burro is born in the wild.
