A former gold-mining town, Oatman is located on historic Route 66. Once home to more than 10,000, the population today numbers less than 200 and a dozen wild burros. Of the estimated 1,500 that live in the surrounding hills, about 12 of these burros wander the town's streets, seeking handouts and posing for pictures.
