Kenya’s donkey population is rapidly diminishing, according to a dramatically worded report recently issued by an animal rights group.

The Nairobi-based Africa Network for Animal Welfare (ANAW) says that donkeys face an “imminent” and looming “extinction”.

It argues that since four commercial donkey abattoirs opened in 2016 in Kenya a “humongous number of donkeys [are] being slaughtered on [a] daily basis”.

It estimates that 410 donkeys are being killed every weekday. Animal welfare says that the
demand for dosnkey skin comes from China.
