Country that brought us Flying Penis now produces Flying Ass

Apparently people are not happy about this.

MOSCOW — Authorities in Russia are opening an animal cruelty probe into a weekend stunt on a beach in southern Russia in which a donkey parasailed high over the surf.

Amateur video footage showed men attaching a parasail harness to the trembling mule. The English-language Kremlin news channel Russia Today reported that sunbathers were distressed at the sight of the flying donkey, which brayed in fear as it glided above the bay for half an hour.

Russia Today reported the donkey was shell-shocked but survived.

Reports said the donkey flight was a promotional stunt. Employees of a leisure firm in the village of Golubitskaya on the Azov Sea could face two years in prison if they are charged and convicted of animal cruelty.

I'm sorry; that's not funny. That poor animal must have been terrified and could have easily injured itself in panic.

I was just looking on the local news site and seen this one.
I read that it frightened the poor kids who were watching this happen.
Yes you really wonder if the poor animal was terrifed being up in the air like that.

I hope those clowns get jail time. And public service in a zoo or something. Idiots.

They're lucky the poor mule didn't hurt itself while landing in panic.
