    I hope this is the right place for this, if not then I apologize. Anyway Jon Katz is a author, he is well known for his dog books. He also blogs about his life, and the animals on his farm, including his chickens. Today his chickens where attacked by a fox. His donkey, a rescue who came to him a hobbling skeleton, horribly underweight with terribly neglected feet, charged the fox and allowed the chickens time to run. Anyway here is the link http://www.bedlamfarm.com try to scroll back a few month so see what Simon, the donkey, looked like when he was rescued. A happy ending for the donkey, and the hens.

    I've spent a half an hour trying to find the video of the donkey. I have watched but cannot find it.
