CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — UPDATE: The city of Portland reports that "Missy Mudpie" has found a new forever home.
Portland Animal Control officers were able to rescue a donkey that was stuck in chest-high mud.
The incident happened Thursday near the end of Country Club Drive.
Officers worked hard to free the donkey, dubbed Missy Mudpie, by clearing mud away from her head, chest and sides to allowe her to cool down and breath better.
According to Portland officials, the donkey was rescued with help from San Patricio County and a City of Corpus Christi veterinarian. Officials say Missy Mudpie was loaded into a trailer where she was transported to a Sinton veterinarian for evaluation and veterinary care.
Portland officials tell us the donkey is recovering and will be taken to a local rescue where she will be around other donkeys.
