Donkey basketball is a variation on the standard
game of basketball, played on a standard basketball
court, but in which the players ride donkeys. A
donkey basketball game is usually staged as a one-shot
fundraising event, typically in public schools.
Commercial firms provide donkeys and equipment,
splitting the proceeds with the hiring party.
Donkey basketball has been targeted by animal rights
groups such as PETA, who claim that the sport is
cruel to animals. They note that the donkeys involved
are dragged, kicked, and punched by participants
who have no experience with handling animals. Though
most companies supplying donkeys say their animals
are treated humanely, critics contend that the donkeys
are kicked or whipped harshly to force them to participate.
Critics also contend that in order to keep them
from defecating or urinating on the court, donkeys
are deprived of food and water for several hours
before the game...
