An unusual protest filled the streets of downtown Austin Thursday as activists rallied to change a state practice of killing wild animals.
A dozen protestors walked and rode burros through downtown to the south steps of the State Capitol. They hand delivered a petition to the offices of Governor Perry and Lt. Governor Dewhurst with 103,000 signatures from people all over the country.
They want to convince state leaders to stop the practice of killing wild burros in Big Bend Ranch State Park in West Texas.
