Pedro was a wild burro who lived in China Lake, California until he was captured by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. Adopted by animal lovers, Pedro made his way to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, where he was beloved by many of his neighbors until his passing at the age of 38. ARG! produced this Autodesk Maya animation of Pedro approaching the Rainbow Bridge as a tribute video that was screened at Pedro's wake near Woodland Park, Colorado. Actor Morgan Freeman, a well-known animal lover, contributed a touching commentary about this friendly donkey's amazing story and the extraordinary love we have for our animal friends.
