FMHOY - Fuerteventura
Staff from the Ayuntamiento of Pájara, the Association of the Majorero Donkey and Zoo of La Lajita captured last month five wild donkeys that were in the area of Solana Matorral, Morro Jable as they had become a danger for the local population and the road traffic as the animals were invading the road and tourist resorts.
The five donkeys were taken to the Experimental Farm of Pozo Negro where they were cleaned of their parasites and received adequate treatment for their injuries by the veterinarian of the Association of the Majorero Donkey. On the other hand, Fuerteventura's Cabildo will look after the care of the donkeys and all the fees related to their handling and care.
Those actions are the result of the agreements between Fuerteventura's Cabildo with Pájara's Ayuntamiento, the Majorero Donkey Association and La Lajita's zoo for the care of those animals. The donkeys will remain at Pozo Negro's Farm until an ideal location is found where they will not represent any danger for the population or vehicles.
