If ever there was an animal in desperate need of help, it was this poor donkey. The poor animal had a rope wrapped so tightly into its leg that a wound had festered and it could barely stand.
Fortunately, a Good Samaritan called rescue workers with Animal Aid Unlimited in northwest India, and they rushed to the scene. The adorable gray donkey had collapsed in front of a building, holding the injured leg off the ground as best he could.
Where the donkey came from or who owned him is unknown. But it was obviously an abusive situation. The rescuers discovered, that the rope that had been wrapped around his leg so tightly that it nearly severed it!
They removed some of the embedded rope in pieces, and went to load the donkey into a trailer. It took the entire crew! But once inside, he was on his way to a new and better life!
At a nearby veterinary clinic, the donkey received some much-needed pain medication, then the vet set about removing the rest of the rope and cleaning and bandaging the seeping wound.
As you can imagine, it took some time for poor Leon to recover …
But once he did, he immediately took to his new surroundings, nuzzling up to everyone who’d provided the care and love he’d never seen before.
