It is with a heavy heart to let you know that our Eliza passed away yesterday afternoon. A volunteer noticed Eliza lying in the grass. When a staff member heard the news and went to check on Eliza, she was gone. We may never be able to determine the cause of death.
Eliza was 28 years old and her daughter, Gabrielle, is 24 years old. Late yesterday, Gabrielle was lying in the very spot where her mother had died. Our hearts are broken, but we find comfort in knowing Eliza was loved by her family of donkeys and humans.
We will be presenting a tribute to Eliza in the next few days.
As always, thank you for your support.
