When Animal Aid received a call to a busy highway they didn’t know what to expect, It was clear and heartbreaking to see, a speeding vehicle had hit him and slashed his shoulder with blood dripping all the way down his leg.
A deep 4-inch wedge of flesh and muscle hung from the shoulder of the donkey who stood completely motionless, He was stranded, between speeding trucks and cars, too shocked and injured to move.
For his guardian angels at Animal Aid, it was hard for them to see but they knew they had to help him!

“rescuing this darling was easy,” they said! “He didn’t even resist being carried into our ambulance. ‘Hobnob’ who he was later called was a dream patient even through all 54 sometimes-painful wound dressings.
