RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Two burros that were injured in a wildfire at Custer State Park have been euthanized due to injuries suffered in the blaze.
Park officials said the burros suffered internal and external burns and were beginning to suffer from organ failure.
The Rapid City Journal reports that another burro that also suffered organ failure was put down last month. Six more burros are still being treated.
The December fire that started from a downed power line burned more than 85 square miles (218 square kilometers) in the park and beyond its borders.
