As Storm Desmond lashed parts of Ireland a donkey became stuck in rising flood waters on a property in Killorglin, in the country’s southwest… It is believed it had wandered off after strong winds blew down the gate to its paddock.

The donkey was quickly spotted by Animal Heaven Animal Rescue worker Suzanne Gibbons, who immediately sent a call out for help on Facebook. ‘Mike’ the donkey is now recovering from his ordeal in an animal shelter before returning home to his owner.
