It was an evening to remember as the Eldon High School Student Council sponsored a  crazy and unpredictable game of Donkey Basketball.

The high school gym was packed as the teams took to the court. It resembled a more of a rodeo with donkeys than a basketball game. Teachers, coaches, students, fireman and police officers all got in on the action Monday evening as the Circle A Donkey Ball Show brought  their combination of circus atmosphere and rodeo thrills to town to benefit of the student council and the annual Senior Citizens Night Out. 

The old saying, 'stubborn as a mule,' was the name of the game as the riders tried to coax and cajole the donkeys to follow the rules.

The game of basketball isn't quite the same when its played with donkeys. There's no telling what will happen.  Taking a shot at the basket when the donkey decides to go the other way, or decides you have been on his back too long, can be difficult. 

The rules require all shots must be taken while sitting on the donkey.
