Rose Township —  A donkey who went AWOL in Oakland County has returned home, Michigan State Police announced Tuesday afternoon.

"Chloe was seen hiding in the woods near her home by a neighbor and was stubbornly escorted back to her pen," state police said on Twitter. "Thanks for all the help in getting her back where she belongs."

Officials said Chloe and a horse escaped Sunday night from a pen along Buckhorn Road in Rose Township.

Chloe the donkey went on the lam from her pen in Rose Township sometime Sunday night, state police said.

They said in an earlier tweet Tuesday the horse was found and returned home, but the evasive equine "could not give police any information on Chloe’s location or plans."

It's not clear if the horse eventually weighed in with her whereabouts.
