Brigitte Bardot demands flying donkey action

Kremlin cops an earful over airborne ass

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

A furious Brigitte Bardot has demanded that those responsible for the Sea of Azov flying donkey outrage be brought to book, the Sun reports.

Police apparently quizzed one Vasily Gorobets over the parasailing stunt in Golubitskaya, during which 17-year-old Anapka was sent heavenwards to promote a private beach.

Despite an international outcry, cops decided to let the matter lie, and that moved animal-loving Bardot to broadside the Kremlin in a strongly-worded letter of complaint. She thundered to prez Dmitry Medvedev: "I want you to act so that the people responsible for this horrendous case are punished."

This has evidently done the trick, since the powers that be will haul in "shaven-headed" 32-year-old Gorobets for further quizzing. The smug "donkey dangler" is unrepentant, though, and smirked yesterday: "I'm a hero. Nobody has ever flown a donkey before." ®

Bootnote

Gorobets had better watch his bragging, since the El Reg Strategy Boutique - inspired by the commercial and publicity potential of airborne asses - is reportedly planning a Donkey Orbital Release Into Space (DORIS) project. We'll keep you posted.
