CRESTVIEW — Motorists on U.S. Highway 90 encountered an unusual sight on Tuesday near Antioch Road in Crestview. A donkey was on the loose.

Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office Deputy Caden Downing was able to find the escaped donkey and slowed traffic while the donkey was safely returned to his owners.

A large gap in the fence had allowed the donkey to escape from its enclosure twice on Tuesday. The gap has since been repaired.
