The Donkey with the Sweetest Soul
Meet Mila, a one and a half year old female donkey from the island of Fuerteventura, in the Canary Islands in Spain. She is the sweetest donkey I've ever met! About six months ago, her back right leg got caught in a chain attached to a gate on the farm where she lives, which permanently damaged her leg. Sadly it had to be amputated.
In countries like Spain, when donkeys are injured they become a liability and usually are put down. In Mila's case, she touched the hearts of those around her, and they have rallied for her survival. Her leg has been in a cast since the accident. She still happily hobbles around the farm and rolls in the dust. She is very playful and inquisitive.
Mila's owner is going to have a prosthesis made for her so she can walk normally again and run free with her friends.
From the moment I met Mila a month ago on my vacation I knew she was something special. Now I just can't get her off my mind!
