I always think I have heard it all and then one more stupid thing comes to light that humans do to hurt animals.

U are missing the point to this petition which is to create a more nurturing society. These kinds of games create a subtle impression in the minds of the youth that it is ok to use animals for human entertainment and has a counter productive effect on the development of the psyche as it de-sensitizes the youth.

Anyone with a heart and an milligram of empathy will read the body language of those donkeys and know they are afraid and struggling with the overweight riders and excessive noise and aggression. Just because it's an American High School tradition, it does not make it right...
People with wisdom and heart ensured other traditions such as badger-baiting, bear-baiting and cock-fighting were outlawed. And Catalonia has now banned bull-fighting...All these were once considered to be...

And Catalonia has now banned bull-fighting...All these were once considered to be "innocent traditional fun". Donkey basketball is outmoded and harks back to a time when animals were considered to be objects to be used and abused by humans for amusement. Times have changed....wake up!

It's heartbreaking that these sweet creatures are so mistreated. My heart hurts so bad. God's creatures are so beautiful, & sweet & it is an act of a cold, heart & evil soul that would even consider to harm them. God will punish those who hurt, & harm any of his wonderful wild beauty.

@Vintage Chasse-The word "trained" alone tells everyone who has a conscience what these donkeys experience. This crap is not a life for a donkey, and your note gives great insight in to the sad rationale used to try to justify brainless use of animals by bad humans. "Benched"? Please. Go to the library. Your perspective sounds naive and self serving. Open your eyes and mind.

This is getting silly. Having an animal working is not in itself cruel ref-Guide dogs for the Blind, Police Dogs, Pets, Mountain Rescue Dogs and I am sure their are many more. If you wish to offer criticism you need to specify the cruelty that the work carried out causes. Do you think that the Bulgarian shepherd who spend all daylight hours on the hills with two or three trained dogs is being cruel. These dogs are both the tools of his trade and his best friend. Man has worked with animals...

Man has worked with animals for centuries and so has earned from that relationship so be more specific when throwing cruelty accusations against people.

Alan Wallace Dont be so patronising - silly? There is no similarity here at all with working dogs and this! You dont seem to understand that it is now a well known fact that children (or adults!) who abuse animals dont stop at animals!

Vintage Chasse Thank you for posting. Anyone that has participated in Donkey Basketball will tell you the ones getting abused are the riders! And spectators will learn that you have to work with a donkey and NOT bully it. It is a fun event to watch and I have never seen abuse! The donkeys are in great condition and have a job, which many animal are more content with a purpose and live longer healthier lives. It really is unbelievable what people view as abuse. So thank you again Vintage Chasse for posting your information.

Thank you, Mar Tim, I'm sure, you are getting, tired of signing, petions from me. You don't know how much, it means to me, for you doing this. Since, an animal, of any kind, has no voice, to speak, for themselves, then I have to, along with others like me. So again, thank you, so much.

Those Donkeys have got more Brains than the idiotic sub-humans who are trying hard to abuse and inflict them. Those are cowards and no brainers who are willing to abuse the voiceless & innocent animals to get fun out of hurting them. Young or old who ever sub-humans who thinks this is a sport and fun are just plain idiots. Such type of animal cruelty is a crime against the planet. No matter what ever the way they are being given the food & shelter. The bottom line is Cruelty becomes always...

Is it possible, is it properly teach children to become cruel and dangerous as adults. This shameful abuse of donkey must end. It is unconscionable to teach children up to torture against animals, how will the world end with all the barbarians around, very dangerous.
Stop immediately with donkey basketball, it's the sickest vicious thing I've ever seen :(
