Donkey Abuse

Two men accused of abusing a donkey in Escambia County will appear in court in a few months.

Authorities say Matthew Ramsey and Terry Skinner dragged the animal behind their pickup almost 80 yards in March. A rope was tied around the donkey's neck, with the other end tied to the truck's bumper.

Ramsey and Skinner told police they were trying to get the animal to Skinner's home. They face charges of animal cruelty.

Their court hearing is September 5.

As for the donkey, five-year-old Jenny is expected to make a full recovery.
