Police in the Krasnodar Territory in southern Russia will investigate a case of animal cruelty involving a donkey forced to parasail along a beach on the Sea of Azov, a local police spokesman said on Monday.
"The donkey was taken on a parasailing ride to draw attention to this attraction. The donkey was braying and children were crying but no one had the sense to report it to the police," the spokesman said.
The incident was later reported to a local paper. The parasailing business owners may face criminal charges for cruelty to animals.

The kind of patriotism promoted in Russia has traditionally been about love for the state rather than the nation. But this country has demonstrated in the most vivid way that governments come and go while the nation, with its great achievements and potential, is here to stay.
