Wild donkeys in the Top End of Australia ABC Rural: Matt Brann
Our guests tonight will be Marjorie Farabee, Dir. of Wild Burro Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation and Australian donkey advocate Andrea Jenkins, who is a member of Good Samaritan Donkey Sanctuary, and has been investigating the ejiao issue in Australia.
Donkey skins are used to produce a fad health and beauty tonic sold as a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) called ejiao, otherwise known as Colla corii asini. Millions of donkeys from Asia, Africa and South America are at risk of being stolen and slaughtered for their skins. Some sources report the demand in China alone to be 10 million skins per year.
The global demand for donkey skins is causing mass-scale suffering to donkeys and risking the livelihoods of millions of people who depend on them.
This show will be hosted by R.T. Fitch, Pres. of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
