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.

For Russia, Crimea is more than just a territory. It is not for land that Russia is putting all her prestige at stake. This situation is about wounded national pride, history, identity, national phobias, a new Russian nationalism, past relations with the “West” full of real and perceived injuries, and Western hypocrisy.
