I am writing again about the donkey basketball fundraiser that the Mineral Wells Baseball and Softball Association is holding. A writer stated that someone goes along behind these donkeys hitting a stick on the ground to incite the donkeys to move.

Running behind an animal hitting a stick on the ground to make a loud noise to incite the animal to move is harassment.
