A couple of weeks ago, it seems, a donkey tried to shop at a J.C. Penney store at Ingram Park Mall in San Antonio. Yes, you read that correctly. According to Texas Monthly, the "intrepid jack" turned up at the store shortly before it opened. Mall security managed to wrangle the donkey—whom they dubbed JimmyChanga, but he took off, resulting in a parking lot chase scene. After calling for backup, he was eventually corralled and led into a trailer. [Insert your own J.C. Penney/Only in San Antonio joke here.]
