Call PETA, we have a forced donkey parasail incident to report! A Russian group has reportedly forced a donkey to parasail over a beach. This activity, caught on video, took place over the Sea of Avoz and took place as part of an advertisement for parasailing services offered on the beach.
For those who aren’t familiar with parasailing, this is when someone is strapped to a parachute and then drug behind a speedboat at warped speeds. For humans, this is not cruel. The person who is parasailing is actually a willing participant in the matter.
The sight of the donkey in the air frightened children. The animal brayed in anguish as it was ripped up into the air. When it landed, it was half dead.
Children were screaming at the sight of this. Russian police were not even called, believe it or not; they found out about the incident only after cell phone camera footage of the incident hit the press. A police probe into the donkey parasailing event is currently underway.
Had this happened in the US instead of Russia , police would have been all over it – and so would PETA. Forcing an animal to do something such as parasailing is just not cool.
