Lost Donkey...part II

Some people just shouldn't be allowed to have pets.  Back in 2016, some folks I know out here adopted a burro that had been put out by his two previous owners.  Well this morning that burro stopped by for a visit and looked very malnourished so I fed and watered him then did a little digging.   Seems the couple that took him in have recently split up and left all their livestock behind.  Someone took in a horse and miniature donkey but the burro was just put out to fend for itself.   I have had my worries about this family since they moved here as they are also raising a teenage son (from a previous union) and very young daughter.  I don't know what mom's perpensity for alcohol is, but the father has rarely been seen without a beer in his hand.  Some of their acquaintances suggested that turning out the burro was the best way for it to survive.  I don't know about you, but he looks half starved to me.  As far as I am concerned, only a selfish asshole allows a domesticated animal loose to just go fend for itself - especially out here.  I don't care what their personal circumstances are.  They had a responsibility to make sure ALL their pets were taken care of.  99,105,77,0,B  UPDATE:  Some friends of mine have stepped up to the plate and are going to adopt all 3 of the animals that were left to fend for themselves.  This burro is getting picked up tonight and taken to a good home where he will be well cared for.  Just baked a batch of super cookies for them.

Poor little burro. He looks pretty bad.

Chipper said...

I agree with you John, that was very reckless and coldhearted of them to just turn him out. Shame on them.

David Johnson said...

Thank God for people like you John hope they have a miserable miserable life .People like that are just pure assholes in my book.

Yes, I remember. I was concerned about their children. Well, no one is perfect and stuff happens. Hopefully it will work out for them. Maybe he needs AA but does he want it? And the burro remembered you.

Margery Billd said...

Looking at the picture and remembering, that really is shocking.

Zole said...

I totally agree with you John.
You can see the poor guys ribs!

Margareen said...

I learned about you for the first time today on The Country Reporter. I hope to read more from you! Thanks for what you did for the donkeky!

MsBelinda said...

I agree with everything you said. In my opinion, it makes it so much worse because of the harsh environment of Terlingua.

Thank you for feeding and watering him. I do not think it is a coincidence that he remembered you and the location of your home and came back because you had been kind to him in the past.

You are a good man Mr. Wells!

I'm glad Lost Donkey found you John. I hope you guys can come to some kind of living arrangement. I'd be glad to contribute a little bit for his room and board if that's a possibility.

It is unconscionable for any domesticated animal to be abandoned in any environment, but especially in an unforgiving one.

Robert said...

You are very right some folks should not have animals or procreate but they do anyhow so now we a responsible person you will need to deal with it because it would be wrong to just let it loose .

Franco said...

Your neighbor off of Mailbox Rd recently ran across him and gave him food and water, too.

Miquel said...

I can't agree more. And now I have doubts about who is more "animal".

Rita B. said...

A big Thank you John. And also to those people who are able to rescue them.

Hachita said...

Yay for you compassionate souls! That's a happy ending.

Hachita said...

For the animals at least...
