People are confused why this newspaper felt compelled to protect the donkeys’ anonymity

There’s something about this newspaper story that got people a little bit confused. Can you spot it?

It’s a story from Welsh newspaper the Daily Post about a man who tried to smuggle 12 donkeys into Holyhead.

And they really did black out the eyes on the donkeys’ faces as you can see from this excerpt from the story online.

Let’s hope they’d do the same for sheep.

They didn't want to prejudice their trial- don't you watch any legal dramas on TV?
