An Ethiopian soccer team was just trying to fly out of Denver International Airport last week when they got stranded in the worst way.

The east African club, brand new to a country halfway around the world, hadn't counted on running into excess baggage fees on their commercial flight (Really, airlines? Really?).

When they got the bill — nearly $2,000 — they realized they couldn't come up with the money. Their plane left without them, and the club was stuck: they had to get to their next city but still didn't have any money for baggage fees!

That's when four officers from the Denver Police Department stepped in to help!

Knowing the team was in trouble, Officers Greg Ceccacci, J. Sewald, W. Albright, Jode Sprague, and Mark Miller negotiated the airline fees down to $400 — and then covered the remaining balance out of their own pockets!

The DPD just released the story on Facebook (below):

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooEndangeredDonkeyZebra

Damn! Look at those wild ass foals!

Those are some wild ass Wild Asses!

They look like donkey-zebras (zonkeys? debras?) and they're just so stinkin' cute!

Five Somali Wild Ass foals were born at the Saint Louis Zoo and they're extra special because these wild ass Wild Asses are endangered!

They are from the desert areas of Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia with less than 1,000 living in the wild (ass)!

So every single one of these little asses is not only super cute, but also super important for the survival of their species.

Who here likes cute asses? Who wants to watch them jump and jiggle around??

Check out the video (above) to see some asses shaking at the Saint Louis Zoo!
