The Wild Burros of Oatman, Arizona

The living ghost town of Oatman, Arizona is a fun town to go through – an hour or two should do it.  Most visitors get a kick out of the wild burros (hopefully not literally!)   They roam the street freely – sometimes holding up traffic, and sticking their heads in the cars to see if there are any carrots to be had.  The business owners sort of take care of the

burros, seeing that they get enough food and yet try to prevent the tourists from overfeeding them – especially food that they shouldn’t eat.  The baby burro can’t eat the same tourist food (carrots and apples) as the parents because of their sensitive stomachs – so the townfolk came up with the brilliant idea to put stickers on their foreheads: “STOP! Please don’t feed me”.
