Working Animals Face "Firing Squad" in Developing Countries
JANUARY 6, 2009
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. 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. We don’t really mean that they will be lined up and shot. No, their suffering will be far more drawn out.
