Jack, the donkey, jumped on top of Hollywood Park Mayor William ‘Bill’ Bohlke and chased him for several minutes before he died, investigators believe.

Investigators with the Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office still aren’t certain what prompted the attack — and they never will be.

‘There were no witnesses,” Chief Deputy David Soward told The Global Dispatch.

Bolhke, age 69, was an experienced cattle rancher. Sheriff’s deputies found his body Monday night after his family reported him missing.

The Deputy explained that a female donkey in the pasture that was in heat and ready to breed, which may have agitated the attack.

The donkey already had a history of aggression, family members told investigators.
