Man and His Donkey Have Emotional Post-Lockdown Reunion


This is the moving moment a donkey greets its owner after being separated for two months during the coronavirus lockdown in southern Spain.

38-year old Ismael Fernandez described the meeting as ‘the most touching moment I have ever experienced’, after the province where he lives eased its Covid-19 restrictions. 

Ismael said he was preparing for his beloved Baldomera not to recognize him when they were reunited. But the donkey ‘hee-haws’ in excitement as she is stroked, while her owner sobs and speaks to her.  Baldomera was being cared for by Ismael’s brother about 20 miles away, but phase 1 of lockdown easing means that he can now leave his home to care for the donkey.  What a beautiful reunion!
