(May 28, 2014) – A depressed goat ends a six day hunger strike after he’s reunited with his donkey best friend.
A goat named “Mr. G” and a burro donkey named “Jellybean” were rescued from a hoarder’s home in Northern California.
The animals were taken to different animal sanctuaries, and when Mr. G arrived at Animal Place in Grass Valley, Calif., he refused to eat or go outside.
Mr. G wouldn’t move from the corner of his stall for six days.
The goat was even given a thorough physical exam, and he was completely healthy.
So they decided to try reuniting him with Jellybean.
When the donkey arrived, Mr. G immediately perked up and ran outside to meet him!
And he started eating again.
They haven’t left each others’ side since their reunion.
