A wayward donkey was found Tuesday roaming around behind Ethan Allen Design Center on Market Street in Youngstown.

Police were called to the business around 10:30 a.m. for an animal on the loose.

As it turns out, the donkey walked away from a home in the 8000 block of Hitchcock Road in Boardman, about a mile and half away from where it was found.

A witness said she saw the donkey walking along Glenwood Avenue and it stopped traffic for a few minutes.

Police were able to corral the donkey, slip a harness over its neck and return the animal to its home.

The donkey’s owners were not home when police returned the animal.
