"When I first moved to Big Bear, Ca in 1990, there were quite a few burros in the area. Left from the mining days of the past in this valley. One week when my mom was visiting I heard what I thought was a knock on the front door. Imagine my surprise when I opened the door and a large burro proceeded to walk right into my house. I can still see my mom rolling with laughter as I pushed the burro back out the door."
From Robin Brown:
"Celina, a beautiful, wild burro, lived with her herd on the wind swept California desert for more than 25 years. Then one terrible day, Celina’s herd scattered as the animals were chased by a low flying helicopter in order to round them up into trap pens..."

From Kristi Johnson:
"After years of photographing and observing wild horses and burros, I came to realize what incredible animals burros are.
From afar, I could tell they were smart, sensitive and caring. I never knew much more about them. Eight years ago this month, we ran across an ad on an equine site stating that two burros needed a permanent home. A couple from Marshall, Texas had adopted two burros and had an acre of land. The gentleman passed away and his wife was unable to keep up with the animals and the land. After time, there ended up being nine burros on an acre of land and they were reaching starvation and malnutrition. The neighbors in this community started fostering the burros and placed ads to have them adopted.
