The animals were found in Bedford during the early morning hours of Saturday, March 18, when officers on the midnight tour found them on Pound Ridge Road, according to the Bedford Police Department.
Upon finding them, officers promptly named the animals Williams and Leone after the officers who found them and began going door to door to find the donkeys' home.
Eventually, one generous resident even provided officers with a truck to transport the donkeys to temporary stalls.
Luckily, the story has a happy ending, as the two lost donkeys were eventually returned to their owner, police said.
