This Will Be Our Only Headline About an Airborne Russian Donkey
OK, so there’s clearly more important news out there, but when BBC News ran the headline “Parasailing donkey stunt sparks police inquiry,” we wondered what mischief might be afoot.

The donkey was sent up into the sky last week by entrepreneurs hoping to attract people to their private beach.

It landed in the water and was pulled onto the shore, said police.
“The donkey screamed and children cried,” regional police spokeswoman Larisa Tuchkova told the AFP news agency.
