Travel Theme: Naughty or Nice?

Burro Beggar

Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack hosts a weekly travel photography theme.  This week’s theme is Naughty or Nice? 

My submission for the Naughty or Nice theme is this picture I took of a begging burro at Custer State Park last summer.  Technically, he (or she?) is being naughty by stopping a car on the road through the park, sticking his head in the window and begging for food.  But the burro was so cute that we couldn’t help but like the guy.  (Unfortunately, we didn’t have any food on us.)

I’m going to say this dude was NICE, even though he was part of a larger gang of feral burros who made their living by holding up every car that passed, just like the feared bandits of olden tymes.
