Donkeys bare the Burden

dsc00793.JPGNorth Eastern province has one of the largest concentration of livestock in East Africa, majority of the people being pastoralist. Most of the people depend on livestock for their daily bread, in additions donkeys and camels are used as the most common means of transport within the pastoral landscape . However, donkeys are regarded low class animals and are not given the necesssary attention and care like the camels. Most times you find ferral donkeys within the settlements areas, with serious body conditions or injuries. The above picture is an example one donkeys that recently moved into the santuary following persecution by a farmer after raiding his farm. It is on this basis that we recommend to agencies to start donkey awareness campaigns and save this beast of burden .
