"Stroked" the Donkey. A Palterton case.
Two youths who said they only stroked the animal were before the Chesterfield Justices on Saturday for cruelty to a donkey. The defendants were Charles Egglestone of Carr Vale and Walter Kent of Mexborough.
Albert Riley, West View, Palterton said he saw the two defendants go up to his donkey, which was in a lane off Palterton Hill and jump on it's back. They knocked it down and one of them got off and thrashed it with a pint bottle. When witness approached, the defendants ran away and he chased them for one and a half miles before he caught them. On examining the donkey, he found two cuts on the left side and a swelling on the right. Both defendants contended that they simply patted and stroked the donkey and this statement was supported by two other youths who were with them. They were fined 15 shillings each (75p.) and Sir Ernest Shentall told them they had no right to interfere with the donkey.
