Donkeys Suspected In Mauling: Bit Sandor Horvath To Death; What Will Happen To Deadly Donkeys?
The donkeys suspected in the mauling of a 65-year-old Hungarian man are under surveillance, awaiting their fate after they supposedly bit Sander Horvath to death. Horvath was reportedly a retired firefigher.
According to AP, the two donkeys yanked Horvath off of his motorcycle in the western Hungarian town of Magyarszecsod, a village in Vas county, and dragged him 55 yards where they bit and trampled him to death.

The donkeys suspected in the mauling in Hungary were kept on a neighboring lot, AP reports.
This isn't the first donkey mauling to make headlines. Back in 2012, a donkey was blamed in the death of U.S. Hollywood Park Mayor William "Bill" Bohlke. My San Antonio reported that Bohlke was found on his Atascosa County ranch in Texas about 40 yards from his truck. Just 10 hours earlier, an average-sized, 500 pound stud donkey had reportedly attacked the mayor, trampling him to death.
"[Donkeys] can become very aggressive, very mean, sometimes triggered by a female in heat," Atascosa County Chief Deputy David Soward told the paper. "We'll probably never know what triggered it, but it was evident that this particular donkey was involved, based on the evidence at the scene and what we saw on this donkey."
According to eHow, the dangers of male donkeys range from kicking to biting, and donkeys often fight one another using their teeth and hooves to severely damage the hindquarters of their fellow donkey. When male donkeys become aggressive, they can charge at whatever object -- including humans -- is in their way.
