An ass-inine video taken June 13 in Zhangye, Gansu Province, gone viral on the internet, shows a man putting a supersize cancer stick into a donkey’s mouth.
The unnamed man insists the donkey enjoys “smoking,” saying that it calms him down when the animal is in a bad mood.
DaniellaTessier, Animal Conservationist said equines are especially sensitive to smoke inhalation and that the lung tissue of horses and donkeys is even more delicate than humans.
. She further added “Equines can be very astute when it comes to pleasing their guardians. However, if someone followed up down the road, I bet that animal will have died from a serious lung infection or from advanced lung disease. That kind of death, especially without veterinary assistance, will likely be quite painful.”
