Baby donkey rejected

A baby Mediterranean donkey that is only three weeks old has been rejected by its mother. The owner, from Carlisle, has decided to rear her by hand.

Rejected baby donkey to be hand reared

Her mother rejected her a few days after she was born, leaving her vulnerable.

Now she's in an even rarer category- a donkey hand reared by humans.
