Ex­pen­sive bite

Otago Daily Times - - Weekend World -

A Ger­man court has or­dered a don­key’s own­ers to pony up ¤5800 ($NZ9480) to the driver of a pricey McLaren sports car to cover dam­age caused when the an­i­mal chomped the back­side of the ve­hi­cle.

Po­lice said Vi­tus the don­key might have mis­taken the or­ange McLaren parked next to his en­clo­sure as a gi­ant car­rot when he bit the back, dam­ag­ing the paint and a car­bon­fi­bre piece.

The DPA news agency re­ported the state court in Giessen yes­ter­day sided with the car owner, who filed the suit af­ter the don­key owner re­fused re­im­burse­ment for the in­ci­dent last Septem­ber. He had told the driver he should have picked a bet­ter park­ing place. — AP
