Where’s the Love for Donkeys? Empty Where’s the Love for Donkeys?

About 5,000 years ago, 10 donkeys were laid to rest in painstakingly constructed brick grave chambers at a site connected with one of the earliest Egyptian kings.

They were buried in a place of importance, “where the highest lords would be,” said Fiona Marshall, an archaeologist at Washington University in St. Louis who studies the domestication of donkeys. Because of their importance in trade across the Sahara, she said, donkeys had “superhigh status.”

Unfortunately, even the most passionate defenders of donkeys recognize that the animal they love gets little respect in the wider world today.

Where’s the Love for Donkeys? Empty Re: Where’s the Love for Donkeys?

Post by Yin-Yang on Tue Nov 01, 2016 6:28 pm

The love is still very much there.

What was the use of donkeys those days?

Transportation.

What do we use for transportation today?

Luxurious cars, SUVs .

Do we still love them?

Even the top low makers in the country would die for them.


[One of my friend's wife in a gathering stated, after the husband bought the new sports car, she became his third priority.

We knew what was his first priority, just curious on the second one. She was not hesitant; 'his secretary'.]
