How did they determine that this mule was a mini-mule?  He looks rather full-size to me, from the photo. Regardless, mule traffic is generally not allowed on Rt. 47, and since this guy had identification and he refuses to talk (you've heard about stubborn as a mull Well, this guy is!) police are hoping you may recognize him and know where it is he calls home.

He was found Thursday walking on Rt. 47 in Green Creek. Police brought him (kicking and winny-ing) to safety and now they are looking for his owner.

If you can help, police ask that you call the missing mule hotline number, 609-465-8700. That also happens to be the Middle Township Police number.
