KNOW AND TELL: Palo Alto wants to help beloved donkeys

PALO ALTO, Calif. (KGO) -- Four Palo Alto council members are asking their peers to consider donating $15,000 to help care for two of the city's beloved residents -- two donkeys.

One is named Perry and the other Jenny. They live at Bols Park and are a big attraction for families and visitors.

According to the Mercury News, the money will cover their expenses for the next five years.

Perry is a miniature donkey and is said to have been the inspiration for the character Donkey in "Shrek."
