This is very sad. Donkeys are wonderful and these people are very stupid.

By letting children think it is alright to be abusing animals, they in life will get the wrong message that it is alright to abuse themselves, as well as other humans. Abuse, of any kind, is so very, very wrong.

Oh please! This is a bad example of fund raising. Sorry I don't buy it. Get off your fat lazy ass and doing something more productive.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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 "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!
