Meteor Hits Donkey?
Police of Cape Town and surrounding areas have been hunting for a
donkey killed by a meteor fragment. The report of the occurrence was made
late one night by an excited native who appeared at the Diep River, South
Africa, police station to tell of a fiery object that come out of the sky
and killed his donkey. The report came just after many people had seen a
ball of fire with a green tail in the sky. The police, not much interested,
told the man he had come to the wrong station - should have gone to Grassy
Park. Later, neither he nor a dead donkey, could be found, however.
