back to article Brigitte Bardot demands flying donkey action

A furious Brigitte Bardot has demanded that those responsible for the Sea of Azov flying donkey outrage be brought to book, the Sun reports. Police apparently quizzed one Vasily Gorobets over the parasailing stunt in Golubitskaya, during which 17-year-old Anapka was sent heavenwards to promote a private beach. Despite an …

    Do we get to nominate the donkey? Does it have to have four legs?

    At least the donkey survived ....

    unlike all those old nags they ship across the Channel from the UK and Eire.

    Her heart might be in the right place but it makes some Google her image which today shatters memories of that huge image that adorned newspapers way, way back in the '60's. Now: < >, then: < >.

    Unfortunatly I'm behind the office firewall.

    So can't see the video of someone sticking their 17 year old ass in the air...

    Nobody has ever flown a donkey before?

    Hope he did a thorough research on this one. Sheep, rooster and duck were on board of first flight ever - I´m talking Montgolfiers and late 18th century here.

    Cultural difference

    Not all cultures and countries have the same animal-pampering attitude that the UK has. I wonder if the locals are really as outraged as the English blue-rinse brigade are.

    @ JaitcH

    Let's face it. We all get old. No doubt Bardot has her late-life eccentricities, as we will all have.

    But don't just remember her for the pictures, have a listen to some of the sweet chanteuses music; which although might not be of any great importance - tracks like "ca pourrait changer" and "ne me laisse pas l'aimer" from the new Stella Artios ad. will put a smile on your face.

    Just like flying donkeys.

    This would be the same Bridgette Bardot

    who was sued for castrating a neighbour's donkey in 1989, and has also been fined five times for inciting racial hatred in France?

    Yes, I'm sure Dmitry Medvedev is going to take lots of notice of that particular crazy old woman.

      and didn't you know that - according to their esteemed prime minister - the former Soviet Union is a multicultural paradise? They will not be very pleased with this racist's interventions I am sure, speciesist or not. ;-)

    did anyone

    actually ask the donkey if it wanted to go up there, or if it had fun?

    No of course not because Dr Doolittle is FICTIONAL. FFS how can they tell if the ordeal upset the donkey, for all they know he could have loved it. Just look at the dogs that go surfing and diving, they love it so why shouldn't a donkey like para-gliding

    Vasily Gorobets is definitely not the first to fly a donkey.

    In 'Air America' by Christopher Robbins (Macmillan 1979, Corgi pbk reissue 1990 ISBN 0-552-13722-7) there is a photo from the China Post Archives showing a donkey in a cargo net slung under a Huey. Probably in Laos sometime in the 60s; Huey reg. is N8513F.

    Oh, yes, the picture caption: Air America hauls ass.

    No to donkey flights!

    Can't say I'm happy with this. I know it's not fashionable to say, but we do have a responsibility to care for animals, and in my mind animal cruelty is repellent and shameful.

    Don't be unkind

    to Bridget , she is about the same age as me.

    Apart from a few extra wrinkles and a bit less hair I am just like I was back when she provided me with some good entertainment.
