A California goat named Mr. G became depressed and refused to eat when separated from a female donkey that he’d lived with for a number of years, according to affiliate station WTVR.

The donkey’s name is Jelly Bean.

The two were discovered living together in an animal hoarding case on the property of a woman that couldn’t take care of all her animals, according to affiliate station WTVR.

The goat and burro were taken to two different sanctuaries, and that’s what started the goat’s hunger strike, WTVR reported.

A volunteer then agreed to drive 14 hours to reunite the animals, and the goat’s hunger strike ended immediately upon seeing his friend. Watch the video below and see just how happy he was.

    I find this a nice peaceful story with a happy ending.I am one who does believe animals have feelings of love the same as humans.

    Ah yes, the country is being destroyed by Barack Obama one scandal at a time and the liberal brain trust at KFSM reports this. How predictable.

      Elaphas, shouldn’t you be out kicking puppies and blaming it on liberals? I bet you wake up in the morning and say “Hmmm…kinda cloudy today. THANKS OBAMA!”
