As an extremely freakish case, Uttar Pradesh's Jalaun district donkeys were recently put behind bars for committing the "crime" of feasting on expensive plants outside Ural jail here.
Eight donkey convicts have enjoyed a proud trot to freedom after they were released from prison.
Jail superintendent Tulsi Ram Sharma said, "Various types of saplings were planted in the district jail premises for beautification".
While the four-legged animals were bailed out after a local politician intervened and insisted on their release, twitterati could soon be seen tweeting their minds on the microblogging site. The BJP leader accompanied Kamlesh to police station and secured release of the donkeys.
The animals were held after their owner, Kamlesh, let them loose despite being warned that a senior officer was planning to plant some expensive plants, RK Mishra, the head constable at Orai jail, had told ANI.

"Uttar Pradesh Police has nothing to do with their arrest or custody", the department said in a tweet to NDTV on Tuesday.
They had reportedly munched their way through 500,000 Indian ruppees (around £5,800) worth of plants left outside. And eventually the donkeys ended up in jail.
'They were confined for four days to teach their owner a lesson.
In India, no person - or animal - can escape the law.
'We let go of the animals after Kamlesh gave us a written statement that from now on he will not allow his animals to roam in residential areas or places of public importance'.
