STOP the INHUMANE treatment to Bonaire’s beautiful donkeys!  Save them from elimination!

  1. Petition by
  2. R. Aguilar
     STOP the INHUMANE treatment to Bonaire's beautiful donkeys!  Save them from elimination!

URGENT: This petition has started because the beautiful and iconic donkeys of Bonaire are suffering great injustices after 450+ years of being on Bonaire! Killing donkeys because of age is inhumane! Trailers of dead donkeys carted to the landfill is not acceptable! Eliminating the donkeys from Bonaire is a tragedy!

  • – Dragged from their homes and separated from their families
  • – Castrated, killed or taken captive
  • – Many killed just because they are “old”
  • – Injured donkeys that could have been treated were also killed
  • – Capturing has caused injury and some preterm labor from the traumatizing
  • – Bounty put on donkeys heads $20 each;
  •   (causes unskilled persons to injure donkeys when catching for the reward)
  • – Witnesses have seen trailers of dead donkeys brought to the landfill
  • – Lots of propaganda from the people carryng out the contract
  •   as they are getting paid for the job (such a disgrace!)
  • – The overall plan is for complete elimination of the Bonairean donkey

THE DONKEYS NEED OUR HELP NOW!  WE ARE THEIR ONLY VOICE! 

  • There is a signed contract that will eliminate the donkeys over time, it states:
  • – Capture all the donkeys
  • – Keep only the females in captivity
  • – Castrate, tag the males and turn them out
  • – Kill the old, injured and sick (at their discretion)

Many local people, tourist and expats love the donkeys and are terribly upset. They are an integral part of the island’s tourism and landscape.  After 400 years, they are part of Bonaire and the ecosystem.  It is very hard to believe some people are closed minded enough to let this happen.  Eliminating donkeys merely for prejudice or inconvenience is wrong.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to bring immediate attention to the Bonaire donkey situation.  This petition will help to put a stop to the inhumane treatment and unnecessary killing of Bonaire’s donkeys!

This is an urgent request to sign this petition as they just announced a continuation of the $20. per donkey bounty and are capturing Bonaire’s donkeys daily!

“If we see animal abuse and do not report it, we are just as guilty as the abuser.”

To: Bonaire Island Government Mr. Jeroen Recourt, President of Kingdom Relations
STOP the INHUMANE treatment to Bonaire’s beautiful donkeys!

Sincerely, [Your name]
