Animal Aid relieving the silent suffering of a donkey…and a man

 In Blog, Rescue Stories

While rescuing this injured donkey, we spotted the injured man behind

While rescuing a donkey with a severely injured leg and high fever, Animal Aid staff members spotted a familiar figure of a mentally disturbed man who regularly sleeps on the median in the spot we see him here in this photo.

His family are street dogs and they share the same bedding. This time Animal Aid staff noticed flies assembling in great droves on his legs, and decided to step in and help.

Animal Aid veterinary nurse, Mangi Lal, cleaning the infected wound

We are grateful to the thousands of animals who have taught us how to be gentle and determined; this man gave us no resistance and promised to leave the bandage on for 3 days when we’ll be back to change it.

Seen here is Mangi Lal, Veterinary Nurse, who thoroughly cleaned the very old infected wound. A chemist across the street saw the goings-on and provided anti-biotics. The pan-wala next door promised to spray fly-repellent on the wound every day.

And the chai wala gave the old fellow tea, as he does, at no charge, many times during every day.

It often happens that human beings forget to see the animals around them, we are so habituated to caring mainly for our own kind. But for animal care-givers, we may be so preoccupied with our search for injured animals that we pass by our fellow human beings. There is a saying: in suffering, a pig is a dog is a bear is a boy– is a mentally disturbed street dwelling man.


After treatment, the man sits with his faithful friends

    Please, please, anyone who reads this, spare a moment and think of our many fellow-people who are in dire straits on the street and still take time to look after ‘strays’. If they care, who have nothing, why can’t we……..please donate no matter how small or big. God Bless Animal Aid.
