Donkeys trained for these events
This is in regards to the Mineral Wells donkey basketball game. The donkeys are not being mistreated. They are trained to do the stuff they do. The only one that gets hurt is the person on the donkey. Usually a sore butt.
This game has been around for a very long time. The high school I went to does the donkey basketball game every year. If these donkeys was mistreated I believe the animal rights groups would of been all over it along time ago. This is just crazy.
I say if it isn’t broke don’t fix it! There is bigger problems than this – bullying in schools and on the school buses. That’s abuse!
