Troublemaking Donkey in Buena Park, Uptown, Chicago

Ya gotta wonder about the back story here. The original caption reads: Image of a donkey standing in Buena Park in Chicago, Illinois. Text on negative reads: Donkey at Buena Park, which causes trouble. Circa 1907.

Anyone care to speculate?

On July 16, 1907, The Chicago Daily Tribune reported on a "BEASTLY DIN IN BUENA PARK. Conversations of Donkey and Parrot Make the Dawn Hideous. ROUSE ALL THE NEIGHBORS. Later in Morning the Noise Disturbs Worshipers at St. Mary's":

Polly lived at 1391 Sheridan and Bunny at 1377 Sheridan Rd (which became 4046 and 4060 N. Sheridan, respectively, with the 1909 street renumbering).

It's likely that Bunny was the "donkey, which causes trouble" shown in the 1907 Chicago Daily News photo (DN-0051755, Chicago History Museum)
