WATCH: Nonchalant mule trots through airport departure lounge

It's not often that wildlife makes it into the actual airport were humans roam free.

On the runway, maybe, as airport can be surrounded by wildlife. But a wild animal entering a departure lounge? That's pretty damn rare.

Recently, videos were shared online of a mule trotting around the Terminal 1 departure lounge at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport in Israel. The animal looked almost bored, it was that calm and chilled out. 

A superior animal roaming among mere peasant humans!

PICS: Ever seen a wild dog puppy? They are even cuter than you could ever imagine

The nonchalant animal was not tagged or identified as a police horse, so finding its rightful owner or handler was a tricky task, says Travel and Leisure. 

Later, the animal was safely removed from the airport - and the natural order of things were restored.
