Open Post: Hosted By The Donkey That Mistook A $365,000 Sports Car For A Carrot

September 30, 2017 / Posted by:

Well, they’re both orange. And carrots can grow really big. (I’m trying to help the donkey here.) The Associated Press (via Jalopnik) has introduced us to Vitus the donkey from the German town of Giessen. Vitus noticed that a human named Markus Zahn had parked his $365,000 orange McLaren Spider in his immediate vicinity. Well, what the hell does a donkey know about cars? It’s orange so it’s just a giant carrot to him! So he tried to eat it.

This happened last year, and Mr. Zahn says that Vitus did about $6,800 worth of damage. Vitus must have some set of choppers on him.

It got somewhat ugly. Markus sued Vitus’ owners after they refused to pay for damages. They argued that he shouldn’t have parked his car there. To be fair, most people don’t worry about donkeys eating their cars. The judge must have though so, too, because Vitus’ humans had to pay. So I guess they’re going to have to put some sort of sign up about Vitus?
