Donkey rescued after falling in well
During a fight with another donkey, this sweet little guy took a terrifying tumble into an open well, about 15 feet deep, that he had no chance of getting out of. Thankfully, villagers who had been working in nearby fields and saw the whole thing happen, called us to come rescue him from the well.
When we reached the site, we saw that miraculously he had no broken bones and his only injuries were bite marks from the fight with the donkey but not from the actual fall.
We lowered two of our rescuers down into the well, wrapped the donkey up in a blanket to prevent scrapes from the side of the well when we pulled him out, and tied ropes around his mid section. Though he was heavy, with the help of villagers and several of our rescuers, we were able to pretty easily pull him out.
The best part was watching him trot along with our rescuers as we brought him back to the ambulance to bring him back to the shelter to treat his bite wounds.
He was an extremely friendly and curious donkey who seemed truly overjoyed to have gotten out of that close brush with death safely.
