PostSubject: Russian Businessmen face animal cruelty charges after forcing a donkey to paraglide from a beach (Video)   Tue Jul 20, 2010 3:54 pm

Russian businessmen have sparked outrage after they were filmed
forcing a donkey to parasail over holidaymakers.






Disturbing footage of the impromptu publicity stunt shows the animal
soaring through the skies above the Sea of Azov in southern Russia.

The donkey had been attached to a parachute before a speed boat towed
it high into the air.

Reports said the beast could be heard braying loudly, as it circled
over sunbathers on a beach in the Cossack village of Golubitskaya, in
the Krasnodar region.
The stunt was part of an advertising campaign by several Russian
entrepreneurs to attract people to their private beach, according to
police spokeswoman Larisa Tuchkova.

She told reporters: "The donkey screamed and children cried. No one
had the brains to call police."

Instead, people reached for their cameras and bombarded a local
newspaper with phone calls, the spokeswoman added.

The Taman newspaper said: "It was put up so high into the sky that
the children on the beach cried and asked their parents: 'Why did they
tie a doggy to a parachute?'

"The donkey landed in an atrocious manner - it was dragged several
metres along the water, after which the animal was pulled out half-alive
onto the shore."

Police are investigating the stunt and the entrepreneurs responsible
may face criminal charges for animal cruelty.

The Brooke is the UK’s leading overseas charity dedicated to
alleviating the suffering of horses, donkeys and mules.

Its advisor Kimberly Wells told Sky News Online: "This animal would
have been extremely distressed, suffering immeasurable fear and pain.

"It should never have happened, and we urge tourists to
act and report
to the relevant authorities if they see any
animal in distress."

Hope they prosecute the assholes involved. Sadly the publicity will make other idiots crawl out of their brainless holes and do something similiar.
