TWO AMOROUS DONKEYS who were separated by local officials because of an outcry over their public sex have been reunited in the same pen.

Napoleon and Antosia, together for 10 years at a zoo in Poland, got into trouble when mothers expressed outrage that children had to witness their mating.

Local conservative official Lydia Dudziak took up their cause and persuaded the director of the zoo in Poznan to have the animals put in separate pens.

The zoo acknowledged making a mistake yesterday, and said the donkeys are again in one pen after about a week apart. It said in a statement:

It was never our intention for any animals to feel uncomfortable because of their natural behaviours.

The interruption of the long-standing romance turned into a national news item in Poland in the past days. Nearly 7,000 people signed a petition to have them reunited.

Two fan pages appeared on Facebook devoted to their cause, with a total of nearly 10,000 likes — and photos of donkeys in the act.

Experts weighed in, saying the separation could hurt their psychological wellbeing. Politicians were asked about it on the country’s leading news programs.

In their decade together, Napoleon and Antosia have produced six offspring, including two-month old Tadeusz.
