Begging Burros

The burros in Custer State Park (South Dakota) are not native to this area in the Black Hills. The donkeys are descendants from the herd that once brought visitors to the top of Harney Peak, which is the highest natural point in the Black Hills. Years ago the rides were stopped, and the burros were released into the park where they have become a popular visitor attraction. They earned the reputation of begging burros as they are known for approaching passing cars and beg for food.
We saw a friendly group along the Wildlife Loop, one of the scenic routes in the park.

I'm linking to Camera Critters and Saturday's Critters.

Enjoy your weekend :)
