WARSAW, Poland (AP) Napoleon is now back with his Antosia.
The two amorous donkeys who were separated because of an outcry over their lovemaking have been reunited at a zoo in Poland.
The couple, together for 10 years, got into trouble when mothers expressed outrage that children had to witness their mating. Local conservative official Lydia Dudziak took up their cause and persuaded the director of the Poznan zoo to have the animals put in separate pens.
That prompted nearly 7,000 people to sign a petition to have them reunited.
The zoo acknowledged making a mistake Thursday and said the donkeys are again in one pen, adding in a statement that "it was never our intention for any animals to feel uncomfortable because of their natural behaviors."
