Two escaped donkeys were found wandering up and down the car park of Asda in Soham on Friday morning.
Police constable Rob Knapper had an unusual end to his night shift when he found the donkeys who belong to Park Farm in Little Downham.
PC Knapper said: “The donkeys were very well behaved (neither drunk nor disorderly) and clearly well cared for.
“We can reassure local residents that no harm was caused and the escapees were collected very quickly once the farm was notified.
