A Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles that painted a donkey pink on a hot day in early May has pledged not to use animals in promotions after it drew criticism from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the Companion Animal Protection Society.

According to CAPS, the donkey appeared to be in distress in video footage of the promotion. PETA said the restaurant's owner promised not to use animals at events and promotions,

However, the group said the restaurant's owner made a similar promise following a 2008 incident involving a donkey.
