Perugio, July 16 - A pair of rare white donkeys
born in the Città della Domenica nature park near the town of
Perugia on Tuesday are just the first of four the reserve is
expecting this month.
The albino donkey native to the island of Sardinia and its
nearby Asinara isle and is now a protected species.
The first of the rare Sardinian donkeys, a 20-year-old
mare, arrived in the Umbrian park that celebrates its 50-year
anniversary this year, in the 1980s when only a very few of the
breed remained.
Through a conservation project conducted in collaboration
with the University of Perugia's Faculty of Medicine and
Veterinary Medicine and the Equestrian Institute of Ozieri
(Sassari), other donated Sardinian donkeys have arrived and
begun to breed.
To celebrate the new arrivals, the park will be holding
"The Feast of the White Donkey" Saturday and Sunday with games
and donkey-themed activities.
