Check out Morning Bray Farm's wonderful blog. Thousands of people across the world gathered together with a goal to stop the donkey roping in Van Horn, Texas this week-end. They sent e-mails, called & in general used all resources to stop this from happening.
According to the city, the roping has been cancelled. The battle has been won, but the war goes on against this horrible use of donkeys. Mark Myers at Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue has offered to take the donkeys, but so far no word on if that will happen or not. If they don't go into sanctuary, it's a good bet that they will stay in the donkey roping "circle" until they are used up.
We should celebrate winning the battle. So if you could, after reading Justina's blog, send a big thank you to the good people of Van Horn. Believe me, they got plenty of harsh judgemental messages in the last week. We need to let them know we appreciate them taking the high road & doing the right thing.
