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.

    WHY do humans feel that beating an animal makes them tough or macho? It simply makes them look like the weasel, wuss they are……….too damn chicken to pick on someone who can fight back. I hope Karma finds the PUNK, CHICKEN BUTTS who did this and shows them what real fear, terror, abandonment and pain feels like.

    I hope that these scum are found who did this to an innocent donkey. To cause such injuries for an animal that could not fight back and defend himself, is beyond comprehension. Don’t these sub humans ever think what they are doing to an animal, or even after, what they have done to cause such injuries. Heartless creatures that have no soul or feelings for anyone or anything living. Please let us know if these cretins are caught and their punishment. No country should allow this to happen without finding the criminals who did this. RIP Hero, you were loved by your care givers and I think you knew that but couldn’t continue on anymore.

    OMG: that poor donkey….. WTF is wrong with people??? It would never cross my mind to do something like this…… I just don’t understand why people would find harming an innocent creature
    entertaining or a “legitimate form of political expression”??? ……..This poor precious treasure…….. his life mattered….. I am sick inside…….

    RIP precious treasure……. Your life was stolen from you….. You didn’t deserve to be tortured and murdered…… please look for MacKitty in Heaven….. you will be welcome to join his group of snuggle buddies…….. so sorry that you were failed so horribly by humans……..

    Find, prosecute & lock the useless POS’s up (and lose the keys)……. They should only leave prison in pine boxes……..

    The POS’s who murdered you will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty……. let’s hope they get there ASAP after suffering terrible deaths in pain, alone, afraid and unloved…….

    Okay what was the point of this “political protest”. Why didn’t they beat themselves! POS people! I hope they get some consequences for this horrendous act. I hate people!

    I read this story & my heart aches; poor donkey. Hopefully culprits will be found and made to pay for their actions, and their pictures and actions made public so they cannot escape their cruelty.
