The donkey that’s a bit wonky.

October 15, 2009

Here’s how ingenious they have to be in Gaza to get round another restriction placed on them by Israel. The Marah Land Zoo isn’t allowed to import any animals so they’ve used their imagination. So they’ve created ‘zebras’ by painting stripes onto a donkey.
Which is a clever solution, but it’s sad that they had to do it in the first place.
Here’s what a wonky looks like:

Still, the children at the zoo seem pretty happy to see the donkey/zebras. Watch their reactions here.

And, as a positive footnote, the mayor of an Israeli town has offerd to send two real zebras to the zoo.
So the donkeys can stop looking like horses in stripey pyjamas.
