Wilson: Be cautious when burros are near

Posted

I read the article “Burro sightings in North Peoria?,” and I appreciate the info.

I really worry someone is going to get hurt because they don’t realize how dangerous wild burros actually can be.

I live near the Paloma Preserve and they are really bad this year. A few weeks ago I was walking my dog and we were chased by a drove of them. And now twice while biking in the area I’ve seen the drove — one time they chased me, the other time, they just yelled at me. And when I’ve dealt with them, I was on trails in the area and did not approach them. I was also with my dog who was leashed.

I’m glad you put the article out so people can be aware, since most people think they are cute, friendly animals.
