Rescued Donkey And Emu Are So In Love They Can't Be Separated
A 'tail' of forbidden love! You can follow Jack and Diane's story here!
A little ditty 'bout Jack & Diane
Meet Jack (the donkey) and Diane (the emu), who has fallen "in love". Both Jack and Diane (whose names were chosen due to popular demand on Facebook), were rescued from an abandoned farm in Kershaw, South Carolina. According to their rescuers, The Carolina Waterfowl Rescue, they are completely inseparable.
The rescue was faced with an interesting challenge, looking for someone willing to adopt both animals together. "They like to cuddle and even sleep together." Jennifer Gordon, of the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue, told the Charlotte Observer.
The pair is so closely bonded that they refuse to leave each other's side. They once tried to separate the pair which resulted in cries from the 5-foot donkey and frantic pacing from the 6-foot emu. Jack has also attacked other donkeys at the rescue, including one that got near Diane. They're now being kept in the same enclosure.
A forever home
While the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue were worried that they would have to keep the pair indefinitely, due to the challenges of finding a forever home for the pair, the rescue has apparently been flooded with adoption inquiries! So much so that their email and phone systems have been crashing. Gordon has said, "we simply cannot keep up with the volume of people sending us Facebook messages, texts, emails, and phone calls." So far, there have been over 2000 adoption applications submitted for Jack and Diane!
