A Rescued Donkey Smiles For the Camera After Being Saved from a Rushing River in Killorglin, Ireland

Smiling for the Camera

Suzanne Gibbons of Animal Heaven Animal Rescue (AHAR) put out an urgent call for help via Facebook when she saw a helpless donkey trapped in the rushing current of a river near Killorglin, Ireland. Help came in the form of Mike Fleming of the Killorglin Rowing Club who generously offered his time, his motor-boat and his strength to rescue the drowning jenny. Thankfully, the mission was successful and once on dry land, everyone involved (including the donkey) cracked a big smile for the camera. The donkey has since been named Mike and is making himself right at home at AHAR.
