OMG!! The awful Hell they went though!! Some people need to use extra protection if your going to have any large animals! Even keep reg. cks. of their areas!! I personally yrs ago had alone had to heard serval cows off a hwy!Then some people stopped and finally helped,Crikey that was an adventure for me! So what's the news on the owner? Anyone know? Thanks Cher!

This is an awful accident. Do you know if the surviving horse and donkey are ok now? I would presume they'd be suffering trauma for a very long time.
