A group of mean children attacked a gentle donkey earlier this week in Limerick, Ireland. On Wednesday, the animal rescue group Limerick Animal Welfare  received a disturbing report of a donkey “being tortured by 20 youths.”

The Gardai (Irish police force) had been summoned to the scene after a young girl reported “three of them on his back … while others repeatedly hit and kicked him.”

Donkey is being rescued

Posted by Limerick Animal Welfare on Tuesday, June 16, 2020

On the organization’s Facebook page, it was reported that one of the kids, believed to have been between the ages of 10-12 years, had “shoved something up his nostril” as another youngster held the donkey’s face ” and all of a sudden he bolted and was screaming.”

Authorities from Henry Street Guards and rescuers arrived within minutes however the offending kids ran away.

No one knows who owned the donkey now named Eli. He is being cared for by the sanctuary and is slowly starting to feel better. It is not known if the youths have been identified and charged.

    Shame on those kids AND their parents!!! There was no reason to treat an animal like that….. Thankfully this sweet precious treasure was rescued and is getting the veterinary care he needs to recover……

    The Gardai and the Limerick Animal Welfare Rescue Group Are to be commended for rescuing Eli…… hope he fully recovers and is rehomed into a loving furever family where he will be treated as a beloved family member……..
