LAKE HAVASU CITY, AZ (AP) -

A wild burro was killed when struck by a pickup truck just outside Lake Havasu City in the second such fatality in the area in a week.

The driver and his passenger were shaken up but uninjured by the early Monday morning accident, which significantly damaged and disabled the vehicle.

Desert Hills Fire Chief Mat Espinoza says the driver was distraught that the burro had died.

According to the federal Bureau of Land Management, there are approximately 30 wild burros in a herd in the area north of Lake Havasu City.

The Today's News-Herald reports that five wild burros were killed in a three-week span in 2011 after being struck by vehicles.

The BLM then rounded up and removed 97 wild burros and placed them in an adoption program.
