Swiss Tourists Save Abused Donkey, Prepare to Fly It from Egypt to Switzerland

Swiss Tourists Save Abused Donkey, Prepare to Fly It from Egypt to Switzerland

This is Felix, one of ACE’s residents.

A group of Swiss tourists, who had spent their vacation in Egypt, decided to fly back to Switzerland bringing an abused donkey from the streets of Egypt.

The tourists were triggered when they saw the abusive treatment the donkey received as it was reportedly severely tortured and had wounds all over its body. They offered the donkey medical treatment and decided on taking it to Switzerland.

The owner of the donkey, at first, refused to sell it to the tourists. However, when the group reported the case to the tourism police, the donkey owner was taken to the police station and sealed an agreement with the tourists. He agreed to sell his donkey in return for 800 Euros, according to the privately-owned Al-Masry Al-Youm.

The donkey was then taken to a hospital to receive treatment and to finalize its traveling papers to Switzerland. The owner reportedly asked the tourists if he can travel with his donkey, but they rejected his request.

Stray animals in Egypt face rather inhumane treatments while on the streets. Animals Rights Advocate Ahmed Hamed previously told Egyptian Streets that Egypt is far from the minimum international standards for animal rights.

Stray dogs are often shot or poisoned instead of being taken to animals shelters.
