‘Walk­ing Dead’ ac­tor to adopt bonded don­key, emu

The Oneida Daily Dispatch (Oneida, NY) - - Your Daily Break -

CHAR­LOTTE, N.C. (AP) >> A North Carolina an­i­mal res­cue group says that thanks to “The Walk­ing Dead” ac­tor Jef­frey DeanMor­gan, a don­key and an emu who’ve bonded with each other can stay to­gether.

The Char­lotte Ob­server re­ports Carolina Water­fowl Res­cue Founder Jen­nifer Gor­don says Mor­gan is adopt­ing them Tues­day. Mor­gan plays the vil­lain­ous Ne­gan on the TV zom­bie thriller.

Jack and Diane were res­cued from Ker­shaw, South Carolina, when their owner van­ished. Gor­don says they cud­dle and sleep to­gether, but cried and be­came fran­tic when they were sep­a­rated.

Gor­don says a post about the com­plex­i­ties of adopt­ing them out to­gether sparked more than 2,000 in­quiries, in­clud­ing Mor­gan’s. She says Mor­gan was the best choice since he has re­sources to care for the pair and they can roam free on his Hud­son Val­ley, New York, farm.
