There are 40 donkeys waiting to be used for donkey roping this weekend. There is a rescue standing ready to take ALL of them and release them from this torture.
Call the owner and proprietor, Jason Owens, who earns a living putting donkeys in arenas to be roped fore and aft and stretched out like a rubber band. Over and over again.
Tell him why donkeys do not deserve this kind of abuse.
Call the Texas Attorney General's office too and tell them to look into it. Just because something is a tradition doesn't make it right. Supposedly humans have the ability to grow and change and enlighten ourselves - why not start now, with THIS!!
