Gov Rick Perry’s Office Says “NO” to Petitions to Stop Shooting Wild Burros

At a Statehouse dominated by elephants, the donkey got some love in a short parade in downtown Austin on Wednesday.

Marjorie Farabee , founder of the Wild Burro Protection League and director at the Wild Horse Freedom Federation, had a helper drop some 103,000 petitions against shooting the burros at Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst’s office.

“Because Gov. Perry’s office refused authorization of delivery,” Farabee said. “Be sure you write that.”
