Can you help? We are looking for the owner of 2 male donkeys who were found on the A339 near Cliddesden, south of Basingstoke on Saturday night, 3rd December 2011

Both are male (geldings according to my information)

Neither are micro chipped.

Both have been taken into “protective custody”

PC Andy Reid (Candover Beat ) is “OIC” for them. Andy is conducting his enquiries locally to trace owners.

The Donkey Sanctuary Field Officer for Hampshire has been contacted

This circulation will go out on the Horsewatch network including veterinary practices (on my system) to see if the owner can be found.

If you are missing two male donkeys or know of someone who has or where donkeys were kept and are no longer there or are in lesser numbers please contact PC Andy Reid on 07768 776844 or 01256 389050.

As a note of caution there are worrying reports of animals being abandoned and as a consequence roam loose. Apart from the welfare to the animal aspect those responsible are also acting irresponsibly as animals let loose where they can access roads are more than likely to be involved in road collisions which sadly can have catastrophic consequences. Owners who abandoned animals are acting criminally. They will be investigated and if circumstances permit prosecuted.

These guys are home :-) they had escaped from the field
The owner wishes me to express her gratitude to all to helped in getting them safe, caring for them and most of all getting them home. She also wants to apologise for bother and the potential accident they could have caused.
There has been an overwhelming response since these guys were posted on the Internet both face book and horse watch an outstanding example of what horsewatch is all about- people sharing information. It was a horsewatch member who notified the owner after recording her email alert.
A huge well done and thank you everyone!
I'm off to give the owner a membership form as she has asked to sign up.
