A police inquiry has been launched after a donkey was attached to a parasail which soared over beaches in southern Russia.

The animal moved over the heads of sunbathers on the Sea of Azov in the Cossack village of Golubitskaya in the Krasnodar region as it was pulled by a speedboat, AFP reports.

Regional police spokeswoman Larisa Tuchkova said: "The donkey screamed and children cried. No-one had the brains to call police."

The stunt was reportedly carried out by entrepreneurs hoping to attract holidaymakers to a nearby beach for parasailing.

Konstantin Sabinin, projects director at animal rights group Vita, said: "The sadists have shown their know-how. It's an extremely despicable event."

The donkey's owner later left the village, taking the animal with him. Another police spokesperson Denis Yegrov said: "We are now looking for him. I wonder how the guys [the onlookers] did not knock his teeth out."
