Cockburn Town.– The Turks and Caicos is planning to donate about 100 wild donkeys to other Caribbean islands to control the local population.

An official with the Ministry of Health and Human Services says the government will not slaughter the animals despite erroneous press reports.

Royal Robinson said that the donkeys will be sent to Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic for agricultural purposes.

The official said donkeys previously have been airlifted to other islands after the local salt industry waned in the 1960s. Workers used donkeys to carry salt but later left them to run wild.

The government says the animals have caused accidents and are a nuisance to developers.

GC, now, you don't have to covet your neighbor's ass.

Here's a chance for you to get your own ass.

gouletcolonial... u are a really obnoxious and negative person, always pointing out the worst that can happen. You talk of Dominican people as if they have much in common w/ ET. You do no justice to these people w/ ur negativity. And just to remind u, Dominicans stopped using horses and donkeys to pull on wagons/carts, they have shifted to the Dayhatsu guaguitas. At least these donkeys are being given the right to live as opposed to http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art13992.asp This site is an informational source yet you treat it as a chat room speaking you mind with nonsense.

As you ride your ass to your hanging, I'll happily stand on the side of the road and wave a palm leaf at you "Cool off, GC, it won't be long now."

"lol!! I'm sorry but couldn't they get a better picture? This doesn't do the donkey justice."

oooo

The ass in the picture above is GC's identical twin.

The picture does as much justice as can be done, given the awful family resemblance.

As for a "better picture," I suppose if it's mouth were shut, you could judge it better. But the mouths of these asses are never shut.

In the picture above, he seems most insistent.

TIJUANA, Mexico - Tijuana's painted burros, known as "zebras," have been a fixture on the streets of this border city for decades, posing with Hollywood stars and casual tourists alike for the perfect souvenir photo

But spiraling drug violence in this city of 1.4 million across the border from San Diego, including shootouts along Tijuana's main thoroughfares, has the burros' owners fearing that their trade may become the next casualty.All the women in Belials family used to work with donkeys in Tijuana they were quite expert at handling them ...Belial has always had a soft spot for barnyard critters..Nobooooody chokes a chicken like him nooooooboooody

Every time poor GC opens his mouth, like the ass in the picture above, he gives himself away to everybody as the trash that he really is.

Speak on, GC.

GC, your brother, in the picture above, clearly has a left and a right front leg.

Thank God.

But both of his hind legs seem to be attached on his right side.

As an identical twin, I suppose you are similarly situated.

Both of you must have an uncommon sense of balance.

Bourgeois democracy doesn't work. The re-election of imperialist villain Leonel is the best proof of it. Once again Dominicans have shown a glaring lack of ability to elect their own government. No matter how easy we make it for them, Dominicans resist the truth contained in our award-winning documentaries, improved university courses, and Multicultural Social Awareness re-education programs. The hour is upon us to implement the great Lenin's doctrine of the Party's dictatorship ......
