A German donkey must be feeling like quite the ass after his owner has been ordered by a court to pay for damages to a luxury sports car.
Markus Zahn reportedly parked his bright orange McLaren 650S Spider in a parking spot next to a paddock.
Speaking to the German tabloid 'Bild', Zahn said "I looked into the rear-view mirror and suddenly saw a pair of fluffy ears! And then I heard a strange sound."
"The sound came from a donkey, who was gnawing at my fender."
Police suggested Vitus had become confused by the colour of the car, assuming his dreams had come true and he had stumbled upon a car-sized carrot.
While the donkey may have caused over $40,000 worth of damage Zahn's garage covered most of the costs, however a court has ruled Vitus' owner will have to pay almost $9,000.
According to local media the owner of the donkey refused to pay for the damage, telling Zahn he should have parked his carrot-coloured car in a better parking place.
It is unclear if Vitus has a previous history of crime. Perhaps next time he should gnaw on an Asston Martin.
