This homeless papier mache donkey has ended up sitting on its ass. 

The newspaper-clad animal was spotted leaning against a bin in Lansdowne Street, Hove.

Vaguely resembling Winnie the Pooh’s friend Eeyore, the animal is sitting upright rather than standing on all fours. Perhaps once a piñata, the animal may have been the centre of attention at recent Halloween and firework revelries before being abandoned in the street.
