I like donkeys. I once bought a baby donkey for five dinars in North
Africa, but the Brits
wouldn't let me bring her home because of "African Horse sickness". So
I gave her
to an Arab family and the last I saw of her was several little girls
over her, tying rags for ribbons to her tiny mane...
She was so small that I could carry her in my arms.
I have a thing about waifs and strays, being one myself...
I ate part of one once. Oddly enough that was North Africa too.
I didn't know you indulged in cannibalism. Not surprised really.
It's just that the British are famously sentimental when it comes to donkeys - even down to establishing 'donkey sancturies' while humans are left to die on the streets - and I've never heard of any being mistreated in that country. Certainly not as 'standard during a British summer'. Unless they mean the donkey rides on the beach. Not much fun I suppose but hardly 'cruelty'.
Twenty stone of overstuffed *nglish flab perched on one poor tiny donkey? I think not.
