Imagine yourself that you are drowning in the flood, and you start feeling that today is your last day as a living being, what happens, surely you will have mixed feelings. I am sure that this donkey must have felt like this only. This ass got stuck in the flood water in the west zone of Ireland and after being rescued, by a rowing club member, it was very happy.
Read ahead to know the details.
This animal escaped from its stable in Killorglin, Co Kerry, Ireland, on Saturday night and got stuck in the flood. This male donkey was found in the next morning in a field and it was standing in deep flood.
The owner of the donkey called the Animal Heaven Animal Rescue (AHAR), and appealed for help. A team of rescuers after a lot of struggle managed to get a rope and buoyancy aid around the donkey.
The team named it Mike and it is there in the rescue shelter while it's stable is being fixed. Suzanne Gibbons, the founder of the shelter, said: "He is now dried with towels, eating a hot mash, all cosy and warm and our vet has seen him and started him on antibiotics to prevent pneumonia."
"He has a small bit of fluid in one lung, but our vet said he will recover. All he needs is loads of TLC.",said Gibbons. It is very lucky as it got rescued on time whereas many animals like this don't even get detected after these kinds of ill fates.
