If ever there were a true depiction of Eeyore, the depressed and morose donkey conjured from A.A. Milne’s imagination in the Winnie the Pooh books, this burro from Custer State Park in South Dakota, must be it.  This burro and his compatriots are known in the park as the Begging Burros.   They are said to be descended from the burros abandoned by the gold miners after the Black Hills Gold Rush of the mid 1870’s played out.  While the other burros surrounded our vehicle and tried to stick their snouts into any open or partially open window, this sad burro did not move nor did he break from his “woe is me” demeanor.
