Martin Stanton from Ireland has always had a great love for animals. So one day while walking around his neighborhood, he spotted a donkey, not far from his house. Naturally, the man approached the cute animal to interact closely with her and gave her some snacks.
Since that day, Martin kept visiting his four-legged neighbor and a lovely friendship was about to begin between them. “I am an animal lover,” Stanton said. “I saw her, so the next day I brought her carrots.” Soon, Martin realized that Harriet was unlike any other donkey. As her owner told him, Harriet could never “hee-haw,” but she did have a beautiful soprano. And that is what will make her famous all over the world.
One day, when Martin decided to visit his friend (and some carrots, of course), Harriet thanked him in such a lovely way. While approaching her, the donkey started hunting her friend. Thankfully, Martin turned on the camera and captured the lovely moment.
Martin said: “As I walked towards her, I started recording – and I think she was excited to see me because she knew I would love it.” “That was the first time I heard her sing. I could not stop laughing. She is absolutely adorable. So friendly and gentle.”
Martin then shared the hilarious footage online and millions fell in love with the opera-singing donkey. “I visited beautiful Harriet today,” he wrote on Facebook. “She was never able to ‘hee haw’ like the other donkeys but she’s clearly an opera singer now.” You really need to see this:
