A Texas mayor was found dead after police said he was attacked by a male donkey on his ranch.

Hollywood Park Mayor William "Bill" Bohlke was killed by his 500-pound donkey in an apparent attack  Monday, said Chief Deputy David Soward of the Atascosa County Sheriff's Office. Soward said the donkey remains on the ranch and an exact cause of death is pending.

"They [donkeys] can become very aggressive, very mean, sometimes triggered by a female in heat," Soward told the San Antonio Express-News. "We'll probably never know what triggered it, but it was evident that this particular donkey was involved, based on the evidence at the scene and what we saw on this donkey."
