Sam the Clever Donkey (video)

Come along with the BBC to a donkey sanctuary where rescued donkeys can live out their lives in peace and comfort.

But Sam and his donkey friends get a little extra. It seems Sam knows how to open doors. Watch him open the door to the food supply, then lead his donkey friends inside where they fill up on goodies.

Donkeys are one of the most intelligent animals and has always been one of my favourites. I always wanted to raise one, but I never had the accomodations.

I think many animals can do that, certainly had cats who could & 1 who would knock on the door(with the knocker) & fooled me every time.
