Harriet The Donkey Surprises Passers-by with Astonishing High-pitched Singing

Turn the sound on and listen!

This is the astonishing sound of Harriet, the donkey with a very distinctive call. The ass has never really sounded like other donkeys, say visitors to her paddock and now they are comparing her high-pitched tone to that of an opera singer.


Martin Stanton, a regular fan of hers, visits Harriet with treats near his home in Galway, Ireland. He filmed her as she gave him the ‘special performance’ last Sunday. He said: ‘I visited the beautiful Harriet today. She could never heehaw like other donkeys but apparently she’s now an opera singer!’

He said: ‘I visited the beautiful Harriet today. She could never heehaw like other donkeys but apparently she’s now an opera singer!’ After Martin shared the video, social media users have remarked at the cute donkey’s talents. One said: ‘Need to change her name to Maria Callas.’

While another added: ‘That’s actually very good for a donkey. she has a lovely tone to her heehaw.’ Martin treats the donkey to carrots, bread and her favourite, ginger nut biscuits.
