Hallelujah: Classic Song Brings 'Peace and Love' to Donkey Farm

An Ohio man cradled a donkey in his arms and serenaded it with Leonard Cohen’s iconic Hallelujah at his farm in Marengo, with the recorder of the video calling for some post-election “peace and love”.

Footage recorded by Dawn Fagan shows her husband, Dean, singing to Ivy the donkey.

“Hallelujah! No, more politics,” Dawn Fagan wrote on Instagram, “spreading some peace and love.”

The Fagans run their own donkey sanctuary on a 67-acre farm they call Jackass Junction. The husband and wife first rescued a donkey called Mister Donker Donks. They now care for several mini-donkeys, according to local reports. Credit: @mrdonkers via Storyful
