This is the moment a bar owner is seen feeding a white powder – reportedly cocaine – to a donkey.
The incident took place in a popular bar and restaurant Kilymandiaro located in the area known as Pradomar, in Puerto Colombia, in the northern Colombian department of Atlantico and was recorded by an onlooker.
Local media report the man in the video, known as Juancho Alvarez, is the owner of the bar and the donkey, named Kily. In the clip, the man can be seen holding a bag of white powder which he appears to put onto a knife as the donkey bites a cushion.
The man then puts the knife into the donkey’s mouth and the animal appears to lick it clean. Local media report the white powder was cocaine.
The video was shared with a call to protect the donkey and for the local police and prosecutors to investigate the case.
Netizens slammed the man’s actions, such as ‘Richard Toledo’ who commented: “Do not go to this restaurant anymore, as there is this depraved man giving cocaine to the donkey, you can imagine what kind of dirty things they put in the food and drinks to turn clients into addicts.”
‘VictorU54143513’ said: “This man should be jailed… choose all the charges you want, he deserves all of them, and even more… maybe there (in prison) he can learn how not to be a son of a b*tch.”
‘CarlosCorreaB1’ added: “You do not need much to know what happens with the drugs taken in that place. I have been there and I have seen how clearly people take drugs. Now with this animal it is shocking.”
It is not mentioned if authorities are investigating the case or if the man has been arrested.
