Working Animals Face "Firing Squad" in Developing Countries
JANUARY 6, 2009
Fortunately the donkey was rescued by the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad (SPANA). Here's what they say about "the Firing Squad," a horrible method of "treating" wounded work animals. Humar, pictured on the right, is just one animal to have suffered this traditional, yet ineffective treatment, to horrifying effect. Like many poor people in Morocco, Humar’s owner had little chance of being able to afford a vet – or even find one close by. Horrible story.
