donkey basketball

在美國,騎驢籃球是一些學校的傳統籌款活動。在比賽中,沒有受過訓練的學生們要騎著驢打籃球。這個活動不但對學生構成危險,更迫使驢處於燈光太亮、噪音過大的環境裡,令牠們緊張受怕。有這麼多其他的籌款方式,為甚麼他們要選擇這種濫用動物的方法?

donkey basketball is a traditional fundraising event for some schools in the States. in the game, students would ride on donkeys and try to play basketball. this activity is bad for both the students and the donkeys. these students were not trained to ride a donkey, and the donkeys are forced to be in an extremely stressful and frightening environment with bright lights and excessive noise. there are so many other ways to fundraise, why do they have to abuse the donkeys and put them in such situation?
