At the eve of the World Donkey Day 8th May, 2016
The donkey is very special creature and the most efficient biological work machine. This great creature is still playing pivotal role in the rural economy and urban goods transport in many parts of the world. There is a wide genetic diversity, hence having different levels of potential of work, hardiness and adaptability to the calamities of the weathers.
Unfortunately, donkey is still abuse, neglected and misbehave in many parts of the world. Not only neglected as animal welfare, poorly fed and even abuse for nothing but just fun. Many bad words are linked with this poor animal very sadly.
To raise awareness regarding this poor but neglected animal, the World Donkey Day was launched by the author (proposed by Peta Jones, a South African Scientist). 8th May was selected as world donkey day (as it is a labor animal).
Many friends and groups joined this struggle and many people have now realized the importance of this unique creature. The donkey plays role in pastoralism, transportation, mining, agricultural operations, racing, polo, and healing of the patients. There are many people who love donkey and care them very well. There is a facebook page on social media regarding the world donkey day.
