A Lincolnshire animal sanctuary has welcomed an extra large new arrival.

Miss Ellie, an 8ft (2.4m) American Mammoth Jackstock imported from the US in 2010, towers over other breeds at the Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary near Sutton-on-Sea.

The super-sized animal was taken in by the centre after its owners were no longer able to look after her.

Andrew Rae, from the sancturary, said some visitors had asked if Miss Ellie was "a freak of nature".

Bing sang a song about you.....
♪♫♫
Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a mule

A mule is an animal with long funny ears
He kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny but his brain is weak
He's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak
And by the way if you hate to go to school
You may grow up to be a mule
♪♫♫♫

I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

See? This is the kind of discrimination we face...do you have any idea how many mules died building the pyramids? The great wall?...died for your freedoms in WWI and II (amoung every other war you humans have fought)? Without mules you people would still be in the stone age!

I was going to wait for your post before I commented, what a bloody surprise you made the first comment. Is the some kind of Equidae grapevine we are not aware of?

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Tell me about it.

When the zookeeper took custody and got her into her pen, the zookeeper turned around and asked....  'does my ass look big in this?' :blush:
