An innocent donkey in Pakistan that endured horrible abuse at the hands of political opponents one week ago, died on Monday, according to the rescue Ayesha Chundrigar Foundation. Social media users across the country were shocked after a man called reporting he had found an injured donkey bleeding profusely. The name of a political opponent had been written on the donkey’s body. The sad announcement was posted on the organization’s Facebook page:
“Our Hero just passed away.
He was doing a lot better until yesterday, he managed to stand up on his own, eat powdered food although he had a broken jaw, and drink water on his own. He had been on IV drips, multivitamins and antibiotics. His external wounds were healing. He was just skin and bones and unbelievably weak and malnourished, like he was starved for days. And constipated at the same time. He had colic that can be fatal in donkeys although his seemed to be getting better.
We kept his temperature under control, massaged and cuddled him to calm down him as he would try take faltering steps, distressed, suffering from post traumatic stress, his heart pounding a mile a minute.
However, this morning, his blood pressure was too high, his temperature kept fluctuating hence he was under constant observation, he started bleeding from his nose and he couldn’t breathe properly anymore.
His internal injuries due to the violence he faced, were too much for him to bear.”
When first discovered, the donkey’s condition had been described as having been one of a hate crime. Hero had been punched in the face, “beaten to a pulp,” his nose had been broken and he been kicked over his entire body. He had also been struck by a vehicle and rope burns covered his undernourished body.
For one week Hero experienced kindness and love; an innocent donkey intentionally tortured for no other reason than abusive and flagrant animal cruelty. Rest in peace Hero – you certainly didn’t deserve this.
Social media users are asking for justice.
