StinkE and his donkey Bernadine were fixtures on the streets of Virginia City.

He was a "stinky old friggin' prospector" - hence his name - StinkE.

"I got her from the BLM," said "StinkE." 

"They picked her up near a highway where other burros were hit and killed." 

Stinke's burro, "Bernadine" is being boarded and is cared for well.
