Please just take that moment and let these folks know how heinous this is. Donkeys are such loving, caring animals. They "can cure what ails you" just by being with them. It's not like they can handle this abuse physically or mentally.
Luckily Patrick, Patty Pat Pat, has come to not only trust humans again but is a poster donkey for getting over the awful things done to him in his former life (pre MBF). Thanks from the bottom of our donkey lovin' hearts.
Please call or email the Van Horn Chamber of Commerce in Texas and ask them to cancel their donkey roping event scheduled for next Saturday, June 23. Their contact information is:
