Anapka, the donkey who was savagely attached to a parasail and sent out over the Sea of Azov in Southern Russia, may be getting a new home with football (soccer for those in the U.S.) boss Harry Redknapp. The Spurs manager was so outraged by the video footage, he has offered a home to Anapka at a farm sanctuary he plans to open in southern England.
“I am sickened by the actions of the scumbag who treated Anapka so badly,” said Redknapp. “If I had my way, I’d throw the idiot in prison. He should be prosecuted for what he’s done.”
Last week a team from The Sun rescued the shaken and bruised 17-year-old donkey and is currently caring for her in the Russian city of Krasnodar. The UK paper is working with the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to see if it will be possible to bring Anapka to England.
