Man kicked and bitten to death by donkeys

9 posts in this topic

A Hungarian pensioner was dragged off his mobility scooter and mauled to death by a pair of killer donkeys.

Sandor Horvath, 65, was bitten and trampled on so much that when his body was found it was believed had been torn apart by wolves.

I always thought of donkeys as cute and lovable until a few years ago a friend lost a whole litter of Beagle pups (my HEART) to a donkey :(

The thing was in a field and they were playing and he stomped all 5 to death. It was awful!! I will never look on them the same again - now this....

Donkeys can be mean. Some ranchers use them to guard their sheep from coyotes.

Protecting Livestock with Guard Donkeys

Never heard of them attacking someone like that though, wonder if it was a territory thing.

Another strange case: Donkey attacks and kills South Texas mayor

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/south-texas-mayor-killed-500-pound-donkey-182151552.html

But according to Snopes.com, donkeys do not seem to cause more annual deaths than airplane crashes, due to a lack of donkey records.

I'm kind of afraid of horses and donkeys. Don't have much experience with them.

If you are afraid of them I think they can sense that. I have horses but have always stayed away from them donkeys. Have thought about a gated mule before.

That is awful, even more so to witness it.

As for this poor guy, I bet it was a very painful way to die. We tend to forget that animals are wild and have primal instincts.
