‘Little donkey, little donkey on the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards with your precious load
Been a long time, little donkey, through the winters night
Dont give up now, little donkey,
Bethlehems in sight’
Christmas should be a time of joy, but for the dedicated volunteers of Wexford SPCA this year will be lined with sadness and dismay.
A little white donkey mare was found abandoned in a lane-way just outside Wexford Town over the weekend. The donkey was very old, emaciated and had no food or water available. The mare was so weak she was unable to shake the magpies away that they had begun to peck away at her. Upon veterinary advice, the sad decision was made to put the donkey to sleep.
Such a terrible end with much pain and suffering for an animal that had served many years for man is very sad. A phone call in time could have saved the little donkey much suffering. If you think an animal is in danger or being abused please contact the ISPCA on 1890 515 515. or contact your local Society.
