Donkey tortured by PTI activists succumbs to wounds


KARACHI: A donkey who was beaten and bruised by supporters of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) last week, died on Monday.

In a post on social media, ACF Animal Rescue wrote, “Hero should never have suffered for even a moment in life. Hero was the epitome of purity and innocence. Shame on us for doing this to him and not being able to curtail this menace of torture and abuse of animals and human beings alike.”

The brutal incident of animal violence has caused an uproar by concerned citizens on the social media.

On July 16, the donkey had fallen victim to abuse by PTI supporters.

The animal was rescued by a local citizen who contacted ACF Animal Rescue for help.

“The “donkey [was] beaten to pulp, punched in the face and abdomen several times, nose broken, kicked all over his body until he collapsed, has rope marks and a car rammed into him…..all of this to describe one political party as an ‘ass’ by some hooligans as written on the poor donkey’s body,” read the ACF tweet.

“With the upcoming elections looming upon us, no one is spared from the wrath of this time…not even the most helpless of animals. This is a hate crime,” said the organisation.
