Since being shared, the video has sparked varied comment on Twitter. While some wondered how this could happen, others couldn’t stop laughing.

One Twitter user used a GIF to express their feeling. The GIF used shows a character named Donkey from the animated film series Shrek.

“Donkey arrested and 8 humans also rounded up? As if donkey was the kingpin gambler,” joked another. “But what did the donkey do?” questioned a third.

There were several who simply shared the laughing out loud emojis to express themselves.
