Thank goodness that people are still sympathetic to instances of animal abuse. They’re not indifferent to the fate of our little siblings and are happy to help them when they get into trouble.
They’re most sensitive to abuse towards household pets. When they hear about a maltreated dog or cat, they immediately wholeheartedly sympathize with them. Neglected cows, pigs or donkeys don’t evoke these types of emotions, even though they’re also living beings who experience pain and fear.
This translates into not reacting when these animals are unlucky. This case is good evidence of that. Someone noticed an almost entirely worn out donkey who had fallen in the street in the Spanish municipality of Segorbe. He was pulling a wooden cart along with his owner. After some time, he caught someone’s attention and alarmed, he called the appropriate services. However, this reaction didn’t happen immediately. Some time had passed before some passersby took pity on him.
How did everything turn out? More about this on the next page.
