Indignation and astonishment. Hard to believe, but it’s reality. It’s called zooerastia, it is an obscure phenomenon, turbid where the outcome is always the same: abuse of animals that can not oppose. This is what would happen to a poor donkey, tied to a pole day and night, tortured by a shepherd in the park of Caffarella. The complaint comes by the Italian non-profit animal rights and citizens. The first reports are taken on January 25 when a lady walking with the dog was faced with a shocking scene: “I could not believe my eyes.” A situation that was repeated in the following days also in front of kids, kids who frequent the park.
