A Valentine's Day stroll with a difference for a Turriff couple
Two donkeys who took themselves out on a “romantic stroll” for Valentine’s Day were found by police after they strayed on to a country road.
They were discovered by a motorist on the B9024 near Turriff who called officers after spotting the animals wandering side by side on the unlit road in the early hours of February 14.
Officers attended to ensure their safety and the pair who were found wearing rugs were taken back to the safety of a nearby field.
"We thought as it was Valentine’s Day we would have an uneventful shift until we came across two donkeys out for a romantic stroll on the B9024 near Turriff." said PC Mark Maclean.
“Myself and PC Joseph Yeoman were happy to guide them safely on their way back home again.”
Officers tweeted a picture of the animals walking along the road and another of them standing near a house.
