It is humorous that Steve would bring up the Burros when he was attending a meeting after having been so amusing in the article published in the Sun....
Perhaps, some water and grass can be offered in the BURN ZONE or at the Edge of the Park to replace the food that would have been available in the past but with the burn and the lack of rain the animals will come down and be a risk to drivers and their own safety. The PooP left behind, well look at that as natures natural seed distribution and fertilizer and get over it.
Please folks these animals are shy and generally are not out during high traffic times. But IF your driving at night and early morning they may be crossing the road. Running into a Burro is not a good thing for You or the Burro.

In Search of Greener Pastures
Grand Terrace - Nobody seems to have seen them, but they've left an unmistakable mark.
Burros from Reche Canyon apparently have ventured into Grand Terrace in search of greener pastures.
City maintenance crews have reported seeing burro droppings at TJ Austin Park off Main Street.
"They're almost half a foot high," Assistant City Manager Steve Bery said. "One of
our guys said they look like land mines."
Berry said the burrows might be looking for grass because the vegetation they were accustomed to eating on Blue Mountain burned in a large fire last summer.
He believes it's the first time burrows have been spotted in Grand Terrace.
