Reese Witherspoon has often gushed to the media about how much she loves her Ojai, Calif., ranch and its resident animals, but it appears that at least two of her furry friends are ticking off the neighbors. 

According to US Weekly, the Oscar winner's miniature donkeys, dubbed "docile and sweet" by Reese, are driving people nuts with high-volume hee-haws. From the magazine:

"It's so bad that a few residents have sent her a letter," one local said. But the 35-year-old actress' neighbors don't want her to leave, just quiet down her donkeys! "She's beloved here," a neighbor said. "I'm not even sure she knows what's going on."
Witherspoon bought the 6-acre spread for about $5.8 million back in 2008 because she said it reminded her of her childhood in Tennessee. "I have two pigs, and I have three goats and I have 20 chickens and of course I have three dogs," she said during an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last December. "And I have one horse. It's hanging out with the donkey, it's sweet," she added.

No word yet on how exactly Witherspoon will quiet her pet donkeys — dubbed appropriately "Honky" and "Tonk" — but if they're anything like the one in this clip, I can understand why her neighbors are looking for a little intervention.
