The links to pages 2 and 3 are not very obvious. You need to click "next entry" at the very bottom of the list of photos (above the comments).

I really feel sorry for them too. I think that chickens and pigs are probably the over all worse treated, but it is terrible how people in third world countries treat their donkeys. Its as if they are just machines. Load them up as heavy as they will take and work them until they collapse. its just horrible.

Yves Rossy is amazing. Everytime we saw him on TV, I was completely hooked.

The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory. - Jonathan Kozol
