Bullhead City sets up signs about burros crossing

Posted: Updated:

BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have set up two signs to warn motorists about burros in or near a roadway in Bullhead City after the animals have ventured off a mountain and have been involved in six traffic accidents there since December.

The Mohave Valley Daily News reports that the signs urge motorists to be on the lookout for burros migrating off the mountains near Bullhead Parkway.

The six traffic accidents resulted in the deaths of 3 burros and injury to one motorist.

The most recent accident happened last week when a truck struck a burro. The driver was uninjured but the impact of the accident killed the burro.

Authorities have gotten about 20 calls about burro sightings on or near the roadway since December.
