Opposites Attract: Donkey and emu can't stand to be separated

Story reprinted from WCVB Channel 5 Boston

gettyimages 117380716 1541685820A North Carolina animal shelter says the close bond between a donkey and an emu that can barely stand to be separated may complicate an adoption.
The Charlotte Observer reports the male donkey and female emu were rescued from Kershaw, South Carolina when their owner suddenly vanished last week. Jennifer Gordon of nonprofit Carolina Waterfowl Rescue near Charlotte says the owner also left behind other animals.

She says the shelter, which has not yet named the animals, tried separating them. But the donkey cried and the emu became frantic. The unlikely pair have been "comforting each other" for possibly as far back as years at a farm in Kershaw, S.C., Jennifer Gordon of the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue told the Charlotte Observer

The shelter has three other donkeys, but the donkey does not like them.
“He’d rather be with the emu,” she says. “When we put him in with the other donkeys, he attacked them.”
A campaign has been launched on Facebook to name the pair and try to raise money for their food and medical bills.
