The donkeys owner, Tim Arnold, was away from home after he was unable to reach his property due to the high water.

Pancho, the smaller donkey, was treading water before the rescue and had to rest his head on Eddie’s back to keep from drowning, rescuers said.

The pair stayed at a neighbor’s barn until Arnold could repair the fence that had to be cut to free the animals.
