    Tourist operators in Russia are being investigated by police after they strapped a live donkey to a parachute and then hoisted it out over the sea at a popular seaside resort.

    The paragliding operators at a resort at the Sea of Azov decided to use the donkey as part of a publicity stunt, the animal spent a full 30 minutes in the air suspended under the parachute being towed along by a speedboat. The stunt wasn’t much of a success though, the animal was clearly distressed and children playing on the beach began crying as the donkey began braying in terror.
