Missing your mule?

Jefferson County authorities looking for owner of abandoned mule; animal may be auctioned- al.com

Seriously, someone abandoned their mule. This is news only in that it was a mule, not that draft animals aren’t routinely being abandoned.

Cases of abandoned big animals are on the upswing. Since last year they’ve increased sevenfold in Jefferson County, Sloan said.

Most of the 25 cases in the last year have involved horses, including four found late last month on property owned by U.S. Steel Corp. near Fairfield.

If nobody comes forward — and nobody will — the mule will be put up for auction.
