In most cases, donkeys living in India are used to carry bricks and heavy loads of sand. After being overworked and potentially injured, they are treated cruelly and abandoned if they can no longer meet expectations.

Animal Aid Unlimited, India received a call about a donkey seen limping through the streets due to incredibly tight plastic ties around its legs. Once they got to him, it was clear the animal had been suffering for weeks. Thank goodness they came to his aid when they did!

They gently sedate it to remove the rope and almost instantly the animal shows signs of improvement. You too can make an impact on the pollution of our waters by pledging to #BePlasticWise. View Now
