About This Image

In Oatman, Arizona the Burros run the town. They get to walk on the street or sidewalks. They show up in town from around 10am to high noon at the latests. They know when the tourist show up and that they can get some yummy carrots. They are wild and have been known to bite and kick. But I have seen them give out kisses. They have daily old time gun shootouts in the street, one cowboy got shot and was laying in the street when a burro walked up to check on him and gave him a kiss. The dead cowboy with his eyes closed came back to life lol..

Hi Beverly, Thanks very much.. Oatman is a strange town, without the burros the town would die.

Hi Rosey and Don, Thanks very much for your nice comments. Yea Rosey they own the town and the streets. Yep Don everyone that visits and lives there feeds them. There spoiled rotten lol.. They are so use to people and noise that nothing bothers them from gun shots from the street shows, to Harley's rumbling through town.

LOL How wonderful. That cowboy got a sure awakening. Burro kisses. I love the color of the burro's. Does the sign of the store say, "Proveyor of Fine Goods"? Great photo.
