Everyone is tweeting and posting this "incredible" or not-credible story about a farmer burying alive his donkey.

Especially the all the "Amway" types.

Aside from it being patently absurd, for many reasons, the name and town of the farmer is never mentione. Nor is a media source cited.

Here is a local news item in MN where it happened:

Here is a news item with a second photo:

See the photos, the ones that show the big picture, no pun intended.

According to legitmate media sources, the donkey had wandered off his owners land onto that of a neighbor and fell in the well.

Emergency services were called and they responded to free the animal by dismantling the well brick by brick. The donkey survived and the land owner was glad it was saved and did not care about his land being disturbed.

It took me less than sixty seconds to check that. What can't anyone else ever do the same?

It is all over Facebook.

I am not on it but some girl last night started telling me about it. She swore it was true.
