Adams Road Elementary School had a pair of unique visitors today.

Some donkeys strode by the school at around 10 a.m.

Nicole Strobiki posted a picture of two donkeys in front of the school on the “Clayton Heights, BC - Neighbourhood and Community Group” Facebook page.

“Anyone’s donkeys!! By Adams road,” she wrote.

Within two hours, the post generated more than 80 comments.

Lisa Henderson urged anyone seeing them to “call non emerge police immediately to ensure they dont get hit by a car.”

Nicole Strobiki added that the “cops are aware now.”

Strobiki said the donkeys had “taken off” shortly after she snapped the pic.

Many were having fun with the occurrence.

Anastassia Isaacs wrote, “Only in BC … lol.”

To which Sheena Strohhäcker-Reid corrected, “Only in clayton.”

Christina Marie joked, “Couple of Asses walking around town.”

Later the pair of donkeys were spotted by a Canco station.

“Just speeding along in rush hour and out run a couple of donkeys lol,” noted Stephanie Barrett. “I hope they made it somewhere safely.”

Pat McFayden thought they broke out of the “fenced area in the curved part on 68th near 177 Street.”

Later, Lisa Henderson added an update. “They are contained and the owner is on their way down to get them.”
