Help Stop the Abuse!

I received this email today from Crystal Ward, and would encourage you to help us stop the abusive sport of donkey roping.

Letter from Crystal Ward of Asspen Ranch:

For those of you who are outraged against the sport of donkey roping, please read the story below, where in Mineral Wells, Texas, 20 donkeys were roped by 150 teams of ropers (heading & heeling).



www.mineralwellsindex.com/local and click on "Burro Boys" story.

We urge you to write "letters to the editor" to the local paper;

editor@mineralwellsindex.com cc: donkranch@comcast.net
Mineral Wells Index
Attn: David May, Editor

Please include your name, city, state, and a daytime phone number so they may verify the writer. I understand the Mineral Wells journalist who contacted me last week (Libby Cluett), will write about this issue in the near future if there is enough interest (and outrage). Keep the letters coming folks.

Thank you in advance for a few minutes of your time, to help send a real clear message that roping donkeys simply for sport is not acceptable. Please feel free to forward this email along to donkey/mule longears lists, etc. My website also has an article on donkey roping.

Join us to help these donkeys and many others like them!
