Gorkha/ Kathmandu – Although their numbers are decreasing, much of the transportation in the mountains of Nepal is still carried out by mules. In order to find out what their welfare conditions look like after the earthquake, Animal Nepal, with the support of Donkey Sanctuary UK (DSUK), has started rapid Assessment of Mountain Mules. Besides a lack of medical support, the main welfare problems identified are a lack of appropriate feed, water, shelter, vaccination programmes and a poor understanding of animal welfare.
