At a time when donkeys are maimed and killed by unknown persons in France, Spain is using them in psychotherapy for health workers who have been exhausted by work in the fight against the Corona epidemic.
The Spanish Association “Happy Donkey” (El Burrito Feliz) offers health workers, who are morally exhausted and stressed due to their hard work in combating the Corona epidemic, free treatment programs by mixing with its 23 donkeys and spending hours of rest accompanied by them within the framework of its project “Doctor Donkey” launched by the association in a month Last June. At the time, the project came in a very difficult circumstance for the health teams in the country, after the Corona epidemic killed 33,000 Spaniards and infected about a million others.
According to testimonies, the idea does not appear to be useless. Which is difficult for him to believe, ask Monica Morales, a 25-year-old nurse who worked in a hospital in the capital, Madrid, last spring, before moving to the Wilba area in the south of the country. Monica, carrying a donkey that does not exceed 10 days old in her arms, says that “my presence with him, helps me a lot to overcome the stress and tension of work.”
“They are animals that inspire us a lot of tenderness and generate a sense of comfort in us, because they are gentle and calm, they help us forget,” says Mary Bath, 31 years old.
Moreover, in exchange for the medicinal benefit that Morales, Mary Bath and others derive from it, a donkey does not cost more than a carrot without its need for a stick, as has been the tradition of human handling of donkeys throughout history.

Luis Becharrano, a 57-year-old association official, asserted, “It is about mental health. The tremendous tension caused by the daily fight against Covid-19 has exhausted the treaters. Here they recover thanks to treatment with donkeys in a wonderful forest.” Here, Pecharano, who drew inspiration from a Japanese experiment, adds: “They recharge the battery before returning to the battle” against an epidemic. ”
It should be noted that the “Happy Donkey” association previously treated Alzheimer’s patients and children suffering from some imbalances in its donkey barn in the Andalusia region in the south of the country.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the northern border of Spain, the French judiciary recorded the killing and maiming of two donkeys by unknown persons on the fourth of October in the Chambon-sur-Doulour region in the Puy-de-Dôme region in central France. The judicial authorities in this neighboring country are conducting more than 150 investigations into the assault on horses and donkeys within months by unidentified maimed and killed persons.
