Grooms at The Donkey Sanctuary have captured some special animal moments of life during lockdown.
The Sidmouth-based sanctuary is temporarily closed to visitors, but dedicated grooms are still ensuring the resident donkeys continue to receive the highest level of care.
The normally busy walkways are empty, allowing staff the opportunity to take some of the donkeys on walks around the sanctuary, providing extra exercise and enrichment.
Check out some of these lovely moments captured in photos during the past few months.
With numerous entry points to the sanctuary, it is difficult to safely manage the number of people on the site, encourage responsible social distancing, and ensure the safety of visitors and staff.The situation is being constantly monitored on a local, regional and national level, and when it is safe to do so, the sanctuary will be re-opened and visitors welcomed back.
