As a donkey owner I am very disappointed to see people in a so-called developed nation treating animals so poorly.

Irresponsible that this is happening. Guessing by the size of the boy on the donkey he would be better of running.

Here again is a case of animal cruelty, knowing the facts that Donkey Basketball games are loud, chaotic, and utterly bizarre events in which docile animals are pulled, shoved, screamed at, whipped, and forced to carry riders who are too heavy for them. Used repeatedly, the donkeys are lugged from place to place for months on end in small, poorly ventilated vehicles—with no consideration for their welfare, safety, or happiness. Maybe if the school is sued for damages putting riders at risk these horrible school administrators will not think it fun anymore. Perhaps they should not be school administrators they are teaching our children, that it is ok to be cruel to animals. This school should be fined at the very least!

The cops in my town used to do this as a fund raiser (for them, not the abused donkeys). But even in a highly republican area, the donkey b-ball has ended! Probably because WA state did something to stop it. Appears Michigan state needs to catch up.
