Pietermaritzburg - The hunt is on for over 100 donkeys that have disappeared from a plot of land near the Lesotho border where 18 donkeys were found skinned alive this past week.

The horrifying discovery of the dead donkeys, which are believed to have been cruelly slaughtered for the Chinese medicinal market, has raised fears as to the fate of the missing donkeys.

There are conflicting reports about just how many donkeys went missing, with some sources suggesting the number could be as high as 300.
