A basketball competition in Kentucky adds a few unusual players on the court. In this game...the players are trying to shoot hoops while sitting on donkeys.

It's quite a challenge..when the donkeys buck, run or just won't move. Teams are made up of four donkeys with a rider on each.

In order to touch the ball, the rider must be touching their donkey.

To shoot or play defense, the player must be on top of the donkey.

Even the animals wear rubber shoes to protect the gym floor. Donkey basketball draws a crowd, and fans aren't always just spectators.

Sometimes the animals try to interact with them!
