"No Junior, watch out, he'll bite!" screams the mother. But it's too late. And Lulu was gentle as a lamb when she took the apple from the kid.
"Never know what she's gonna do, I guess", says Eugene in amazement.

“Mercy me!!” one lady squeaks when Lulu whinnies for an apple
—“Have you ever seen such huge teeth?” another moans
—“Stay back, Junior!” another grabs her fascinated young son, “She could bite you!”
—“But, Ma!” Junior wails, “I want to feed Lulu too! She’s a sweet donkey!”
—“Sweet!!!!” Eugene is astounded. “What about this?” He turns around, bends over & shows where Lulu bit him
—“Eeeeekkkkk!!!!” the ladies squeal & faint…Junior takes the opportunity to grab an apple…

Lulu returns from chasing Eugene around, trots over to to the fence and starts begging Becky for an apple. "I bet you never saw a donkey beg before, have you folks?", she says to the gathering crowd.

Friskily, Xitty’s ‘babies’ start a game of tag…
—“Oooo!” the croud whispers, snapping pictures…
—“Hmmm…” Becky ponders, “How can we make money without needing Sargent Krumkey’s form 0049 or form 0890?
—“Ah Ha!!” Velma squeels, “We can run a raffle!! The winner gets to name Xitty’s ‘babies’!
—Becky: “Yes!!…Er…No!!! Not one raffle, but a series of raffles…one for each of Xitty’s ‘babies’! That way we’ll generate more money.”
—Velma: “That sounds like a lot of work. Xitty has 8 babies; 2 black puppies, 3 calico kittens, 2 little rabbits & a lamb. How about a mega raffle? One form with a picture of each baby & a place for its suggested name. The cost will depend on how many names are filled in…1 name: $5, 2 names: $9, 3 names: $13, up to $33 for all 8 names.”

Eugene started after them. "Wait Chuck! You have an opportunity here!"

"Xitty is about to put on another show!"

"More people are arriving!"

"Well Becky," said Velma "Guess we fill in for the boys again!"

Chuck, overwhelmed with everything: “I give up! I resign! I quit! I’m out of here! I’m going fishing! See ya later!”
—Officer Krumkey, mouth open in amazement, bag of ‘evidence’ in hand: “Well!!! Will you look at him! The Chief’s going to have a fit!”
—Yancy, thinking about the Chief’s upcoming fit, runs to catch up: “Wait! I’m going too!”

“Alright…” Chuck grumps…
—“Hey!” Becky has an idea, “These people haven’t been invited! They saw Chuck’s photos on UTube & showed up!”
—“Right!” Velma adds, “We’re merely trying to help control the crowds! Just look at how many line up to see Xitty & her ‘babies’!
—“They are blocking the drive!” Yancy adds, “The whole situation is out of control. Chief Steve ought to assign deputies to direct traffic!”
—“Well….” Krumkey mutters, “I don’t know….You’ll have to ask the Chief.”
—As Krumkey collects Eugene’s 'evidence', Chuck whispers, “Well, one money-making idea bites the dust, but at least we won’t have to find & fill out those forms, or pay the fees either.”

"Zero-zero-forty-nine and Zero-eight-ninety, those are the two forms you are supposed to have submitted to Zippy at the Zoning Department at Town Hall. You can't run an animal zoo in this county without submitting a Zero-zero-forty-nine and a Zero-eight-ninety, and receiving the Zoo Permit!", says Krumkey.

"Zoinks, I didn't know that!", says Chuck.

"I'll let you off easy this time. Just go see Zippy in Zoning first thing Monday and fill out those permit forms", says Krumkey.

“Unless you have evidence of his involvement in a crime, you can’t apprehend him. Get back on task.” Steve, the Police Chief advises
—“But Chief!” Officer Krumkey protests, “I’m needed here … Chuck’s donkey Lulu jumped the fence & is in hot pursuit of Eugene!”
—Chief Steve: “Now why would Lulu do a fool thing like that?”
—Officer Krumkey: “Don’t know…but she bit a hunk out of Eugene’s rump…” (interrupted by Chief’s laughter)

Steve, the Police Chief, answers his phone.

"We have a clear case of guilt here!" says officer Krumkey.
"Officer Krumkey, I have told you many times, you can't get someone on suspicion. Just what did the suspect do?"

Right behind him, Lulu is in hot pursuit…
—As Eugene sprints toward the barn, Lulu jumps the fence as easily as you’d step over a curb
—Chuck: “Lulu hasn’t jumped a fence in 7 years! Didn’t think she still could!”
—Yancy: “Wonder what that is all about! Lulu sure is ticked!”
—Chuck: “Look at him go!! The track team outta draft Eugene!”
—Officer Krumkey: “Looks like a clear case of guilt to me. Wonder what he’s guilty of. Better call the Chief & find out.”

Eugene is just clearing the top of the fence.

“Maybe you need to draft some of your cousins.” Velma suggests, “Try Mitch, Ron, Don or Jeff...”
—“I’m going to Mom’s.” Becky states, “We’ll see if we can catch up with Granny. If she still has the hooch cabinet, maybe we can salvage some of that premium moonshine. It would sell high on ebay.”
—Velma: “I’m going too!”
—Velma, whispering: “Becky, aren’t leaving me here to deal with Yancy, Chuck, the cousins & all these looky-loos!”

"Just a minute!" says Eugene. "We have a fine to pay."

Thinking again, Eugene says "10 bucks a car load and 5 dollars each! That's what they charge at the Drive in!"

“Half-a-dollar each.” Eugene suggests
—“Eugene, Eugene, Eugene!” Velma sighs, shaking her head, “You are thinking too small!”
—“Yep.” Yancy agrees, “Not only that, but that that low a fee will keep the roads clogged all day & night!”
—Becky: “How about $1 each or $5 per car load? That should encourage car pooling. ”
—Chuck: “We should charge double that just to view from the car.”
