During these chaotic games, gentle donkeys are shoved, kicked, yanked, or whipped by riders trying to score points in the name of “entertainment.”

These innocent donkeys are also subjected to deafening crowds, which is terrifying for them. With no escape, the donkeys cry out in fear and frustration, which is apparently part of the “fun."

This “game” must be stopped. We can’t help but be reminded of the brutal killing of Pasado the donkey just over 20 years ago at the hands of teenagers in the name of “fun." These adults should know better!  

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
