I am a big fan of wild animals, but when they roam in unprotected areas in herds they become an immediate Danger to THEM and US. We saw lots of mini herds of Burro's. Many of them were grazing too near the road. At one point coming from Trona, too many tourist were stopped along the road which is fine, but the huge Danger was they had not pulled off properly or safely from the road that people drive 55 miles an hour and they were running all over it to get a photo of a burro. Good Grief!! I grew up the desert so it was not a new thing to us. So if you see them, get OFF the road safely. A photo is not worth your life!
I've know someone personally that accidental hit one these leaving from work and he was in a coma for a week. So please take the danger seriously. They blend into the night and some are almost as big as a 13 hands horse.
Does't look too dangerous? It's not legal to take photos in a casino in Nevada apparently (doesn't seem to aply in Vegas!) The staff almost took the film out of the camera, but some grovelling apologies saved the day! Why no photos? well, firstly the croupier may become dazzled by the flash and second someone may make copies of the chips. Fair enough really, live and learn.
The photo? hit the jackpot - thats two cup fulls of nickels, around $60 thats all but the biggest win we had and it paid for the motel plus meal!!
