Donkey Causes $6,000 in Damage on Orange Sports Car It May Have Mistaken for a Carrot
Cops said the incident may have occurred after the donkey, named Vitus, mistook the luxury sports car for a carrot.
Luxury vehicle owners may want to think twice about the paint job on their $356,000 sports car after this cautionary tale.
A donkey named Vitus seemed to confuse a McLaren Spider — painted bright orange — for a carrot when it chewed the vehicle up, causing more than $6,000 worth of damage, APTN reported.
The car’s owner, Markus Zahn of Germany, said he parked his car in a lot that bordered a local donkey enclosure last year. When he returned to the car, the paint and a carbon-fiber attachment was damaged.
He later brought the donkey’s owner, who refused to pay for damages and suggested he should have found a better parking spot, to court.
However, local media reported that the state court sided with Zahn Thursday, awarding him the damages.
It is unclear whether the donkey's owner will appeal the decision.
