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.

  1. Agree, I’d love to see actual “medical” reports and (especially) a Debate between experts of modern medicine vs. Asian practitioners regarding these inhumane and odd uses of animal parts! There may be something like this available in the literature out there ; does anyone know? (No, I haven’t had time for an extensive literature search for myself, and no longer enjoy full access to professional journals as I once had available) 😦

  2. What’s worse is that people who know these things don’t work take part in unethical slaughter to make money. In the United States hunted bear gall bladders (sometimes poached) are shipped to Asia too, for folk medicine.

  3. “Go meet a donkey” face to face and your life will be changed, as Marjorie said during the radio show. I for one can verify that to be 100% true. Having seen wild burros in their wild habitat, I was amazed at their physical beauty and their obvious intelligence and inquisitiveness… but meeting a semi-wild burro face to face (or rather forehead to forehead) is an experience that I will never ever forget. Try it … YOU will like it … in fact you will love it!

  4. A farmer in Brazil is looking for a better way to make a living than slaughtering Donkey’s for China’s ejiao market. His children love the Donkeys and Brazil frowns upon slaughtering them. He needs a way to use his land in a positive way to make a living and wants to do so.
