Police are hunting yobs who spray-painted a donkey so it looked like a zebra.Or rather, so that it looked like a donkey spray painted with black and white stripes…
Another donkey had an obscene image spray-painted across its body.We don’t get a picture of this one, sad to say.
This was not the first time animals at Uckfield-based Sussex Horse Rescue Trust have been used as living canvases by graffiti artists.Yes, it’s cruel (I doubt non-toxic paint was used), but it’s at least a step up from the usual shooting/stabbing/poisoning.
Sussex Police, the rescue centre and the RSPCA are investigating.
And as ‘Harry’s Place’ notes, donkeys have it far, far worse in other countries.
