In a horrific case of animal abuse occurring in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, a donkey had been tied up and brutally beaten with a pipe. His abuser was so angry, he repeatedly hit the donkey on his head – so hard that the animal’s eye ruptured. Abrasions, cuts and bruises covered the innocent animal’s body. How he survived such brutality was just pure luck.
Why the donkey was beaten sent chills up the spine of his rescuers. According to Animal Aid Unlimited, the man who beat the donkey had been in an altercation with someone else, and purposely tortured his rival’s animal to prove what “a tough guy he was.”
When rescuers discovered the animal, they had never witnessed such cruelty. The donkey’s new life began when rescuers literally picked him up and transported him back to the hospital. He had bruises all over his face- his eye had literally popped out of its socket from the repeated blows. For the next five weeks, the donkey named Veeru, which means “brave” in Hindu, gradually improved. Rescuers undertook the task of slowly gaining his trust.
The man who inflicted the egregious cruelty on Veeru has since been arrested and is currently awaiting his trial. Be the voice for those who cannot speak. It doesn’t matter where you live- it matters to the animals you help. Just ask Veeru and listen to his joyful “brays.”
