Brutally beaten donkey finds love at last
This is a very difficult story to tell, so we’ll start with the good news. This donkey is peaceful, happy and will live the rest of his life without fear or pain here in Animal Aid.
But the bad news is horrendous. He had been beaten. Tied and brutally, repeatedly, hit with a pipe. The blows to his head were so heavy that his left eye ruptured. Cuts and bruises covered his body. We learned after the rescue that a man had beaten his rival’s donkey after a fight. That’s right—to make the point about what a tough guy he was, he beat someone’s donkey almost to death.
We immediately filed a police case and helped find the abusive monster. He was arrested, and is now awaiting trial. This beautiful donkey, who we’ve named Veeru, which means “brave” in Hindi, gradually healed and began the long process of overcoming his fear of people. Veeru has travelled a very long road to be loved, and home at last.
