The Whatcom Humane Society has put out an urgent request for an outcry against Ferndale High School’s Donkey Basketball Fundraiser this Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Ferndale High School gym.
“NOT COOL!” as they put it.
Donkey Basketball is a “game” in which people play basketball while riding donkeys. The animals are pushed, kicked and punched in the process. They also slide on gym floors are hit by wayward basketballs and are terrified by the noise and mayhem.
“Donkey Basketball fundraisers encourage our communities to exploit animals for profit and teach our children that animal abuse is acceptable,” the Whatcom Humane Society said.
Please let the people below know that it’s not acceptable in our community and ask them to cancel it. Their are other ways to raise money for their important programs.
