Only in Texas folks! Buddy the donkey found himself as the star witness in a trial which pitted two neighbors against one another. Buddy's owner, Gregory Shamoun, was being sued by his neighbor, John Cantrell.
The dispute started when Gregory built a shed in John's backyard. When John complained, Gregory retaliated by bringing Buddy from his ranch to his home backyard. John didn't like the donkey noises Buddy was making so he sued.
Buddy was brought into court and on the witness stand to show the jury how sweet he is.
WTF?!!!!!! What the hell kind of trial is this and why couldn't I have been on the jury?
The neighbors settled their dispute while the jury was deliberating. Gregory agreed to buy some of John's land.
