Ramón Amaya lives in the neighbourhood of Llera, Badajoz. His life changed on January the 2nd, when he rescued a mule that was near to death by the wayside. Witnesses said that the mule collapsed in exhaustion, while being pulled by a jeep. She was first dragged on the ground, then beat and finally abandoned.
Ramón decided to take charge of the mule, who was named Muliki. Thanks to one of our Facebook friends, we knew about this story and rapidly contacted Ramón to offer him our support and advice.
Yesterday, one of our vets at El Refugio del Burrito went to the industrial premises where Muliki is currently staying, to check her health. We made some blood, urine and stool tests and we examined and treated her hooves and mouth. For the moment, she will follow a special diet to gain weight and take some vitamin supplements…and she already has an appointment for the next check.
The Service for the Protection of Nature from the Guardia Civil (Seprona) has opened an investigation to determine the conditions in which the mule was abandoned. El Refugio del Burrito will file a complaint to ensure that those who are responsible for the aggression and the abandonment of Muliki are brought to court. If you know something about this case, please contact us through a private message in Facebook or at our email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will closely follow Muliki’s development and the investigation by the authorities!
