Donkey wearing a parachute!


I think that http://www.newsy.com/ offers very interesting videos together with the transcripts of texts. The above one is especially funny even though Russian animal activists decided to file a lawsuit against the business owners. The onlookers of the donkey’s parasailing were shocked and the donkey brayed but it seems that nobody did do anything against  it. The whole ordeal was projected to attract tourists!
Would you consider the event or the watching of the video as a kind of animal cruelty?
Vocabulary in Italian
