Indian donkey killed by bulldozer


Beautiful donkey being deliberately crushed to death, WHEN TRYING TO PROTECT A FRIEND, (A PUP)  ... Urgent Action.


Press Release: Charity shocked by brutal donkey killing

from The Donkey Sanctuary        

7th September 2011

International animal welfare charity The Donkey Sanctuary has today announced that it is commencing legal action in response to video footage showing a donkey being deliberately crushed to death by a digger.

The Donkey Sanctuary is appalled by the video clip which was taken in the town of Churu in Rajastan, India on 7th August 2011. The shocking footage shows a local official using the excavator of a mechanical digger to knock the donkey to the ground and then repeatedly hit it on the head and body.



Local community members had seen the donkey sniffing a dog that was thought to have died of rabies and suspected that the donkey may have contracted the disease. They contacted their local municipality who sent a man and a digger to deal with the situation.



Stephen Blakeway, director of international operations for The Donkey Sanctuary, says: “This is a truly brutal and shocking video which shows the donkey being treated with extreme and needless cruelty. If advice had been sought, the donkey could either have been quarantined to see if it had any symptoms or euthanised humanely. In this case, the municipality’s response broke Indian Animal Welfare law so we have now started a process of legal action. We have instructed our legal adviser, who is one of India’s top Animal Welfare lawyers, to initiate action. He is now working closely with the Animal Welfare Board of India and the local Society for the Protection of Animals in order to bring a prosecution.

“We cannot bring the donkey back to life, and we are not interested in impoverishing a municipality that may already be short of money to meet its responsibilities, but a legal case will publicise that there are humane ways to respond to such situations and so reduce the chance that this terrible action will be repeated.”



The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals act in India (1960) lists torturing an animal as an illegal and punishable offence. The act sets out a procedure for the destruction of ill and suffering animals; a government veterinarian should have been called to provide a medical opinion on the matter and to euthanise the animal humanely if required, which did not happen in this case.



The Donkey Sanctuary has been working in India since 1988, and five mobile veterinary teams based in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Gwalior, Sikar and Solapur work to protect and promote the welfare of the country’s many working donkeys and mules.

Shocked by brutal donkey killing By Suzi Cretney - Posted on 7th September 2011Tagged:  














































































International animal welfare charity The Donkey Sanctuary has today announced that it is commencing legal action in response to video footage showing a donkey being deliberately crushed to death by a digger.

What do you want to ask the animal lawyers?

EVERY ONES comments, suggestions, signature's, are critical in hope for justice for the beautiful brave donkey, for ALL animals.

I stumbled a great horse and donkey website with lots of information about them and I learnt about the donkey behavior. I read that the donkey stand still and considers the best course of action when faced with a strange and dangerous situation. They are very very inteligent and gentle animals.

You can see this in the video yourself and come to your own conclusions, then give your thoughts to try to bring justice against the abuser and murderer, bring change and justice for this brave donkey and for improved stronger animal welfare laws.

This is my thoughts after watching carefully the video.

This Beautiful Brave Heart Donkey (BBHD) obviously was thinking about the situation, the downed friend (a dog), BBHD decided to stand to try to get the dog to stand up, but when the dog did not... BBHD stood in the face of extreme torture, abuse and a prolonged death whilst trying to protect a friend.

Please put on face book, Twitter, everywhere, forward, blogging, email, tell your country's newspapers, everything to help. No help is too small. We must not let this poor BEAUTIFUL BRAVE HEART DONKEY DIE IN VAIN OR LET OTHER ANIMALS DIE IN EXTREME AGONY.
 

PLEASE tell everyone of this brave soul, and ask them to sign, comment too so we can help try to change the animal welfare laws in India. Humans have much to learn from animals and each other for the good of compassion and life it's self.

Thank you from the heart for signing, your time and energies.
