Sixteen donkeys taken in by The Donkey Sanctuary from South Mayo

David Walsh, donkey welfare adviser with The Donkey Sanctuary was recently contacted by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine in Mayo seeking assistance with a donkey welfare case in South Mayo.

Sixteen donkeys in very poor body condition were seized by the department and removed into the care of The Donkey Sanctuary. These neglected donkeys were abandoned in a field with no food and no access to water. Recent harsh winter weather conditions meant the field they were in was water logged. Alongside the live donkeys, the carcass of a dead donkey was also discovered.

A new year and a new life for Echo the donkey

Last New Year’s Eve a forlorn and neglected donkey took a few uncertain steps onto a trailer and to his new life in the care of The Donkey Sanctuary Ireland whose headquarters is based in Mallow, Co.Cork.

In the last few days of 2017, one of our Donkey Welfare Adviser’s responded to a call from a member of the public who was very concerned about a donkey with extremely long hooves.

Donkey welfare adviser, Jane Bruce attended the location to discover a donkey in a shocking state of neglect. The donkey’s hooves were at least three times the length of a normal hoof.
