As someone who is terrified of heights, I know how that poor donkey felt. May the losers who did this spend a good long time in jail contemplating their actions.

Why in the world didn't someone call the police right away!? This poor donkey's life was cut short because of heartless scumbags who were only thinking of themselves and used the donkey for entertainment purposes!! Thnx Cher, noted with anger & much sadness.

The perpetrators should have used one of their grandmothers or grandfathers. It would have made for a better publicity stunt with no backlash from animal rights groups. Of course I don't wish their elders ill, but it would certainly get the point across. Such a stupid and insensitive act by humans. This poor donkey, for 30 minutes, thought he was probably dying. If you could scare an animal to death, this would be one way of doing it.

A society that kills people for peace doesn't have to go far to torture animals for fun. I wouldn't be surprised to find out these kids parents are police or politicians.

This cruel act was done by people who do not care about any living thing and I hope what goes around, comes around and they get their 'just desserts' in the end! Hope someone who cares gets possession of that poor animal too.

This was a stupid act and then they had to put the donkey to sleep. Those involved need a good long time in a very small cell

they want to be cruel to the donkey than the donkey should be cruel to them by putting them in a small cage after kicking them in the balls
