A gang of mindless yobs broke into a petting zoo and abused animals by riding on donkeys and putting make-up on a pony.
The vile teens cowardly fled when the owner of the farm chased them away after seeing their antics online.
At least half a dozen teenage thugs broke into the farm to traumatise the innocent animals inside.
One girl even tried to ride a donkey in a picture posted online.
Jimmy Abma, a fourth generation farmer, was alerted to a break in at Abma’s Farm in New Jersey, US, after he got a message on his phone Saturday evening.
It showed a teenager riding a miniature donkey.
Jimmy, whose family have run the farm for 80 years, confirmed the animal was his after he saw a Snapchat image with a caption reading: “Abma’s Farm”, Mail Online reports.
The image showed a young blonde girl in black clothes mounting a miniature donkey and trying to ride it.
The animals are not strong enough to support the weight of a teenage.
Jimmy told WCBS: “‘Obviously, we’re closed, so that raised a concern to me right off the bat, that there’s people trespassing, the animals are somewhat in danger and I just need to figure out what’s going on.”
Abma raced to the property and ended up chasing at least half a dozen yobs from the farm.

Two of the gang are alleged to have attempted to shoplift from the onsite supermarket.
The farm owner chased the group off as he rang 911.
He said: “Whatever these kids did they need to be held responsible for it.
“At the end of the day this is our house, our yard, our livelihood.”
The property owner took to social media to tell well-wishers that a vet was going to check the animals over.
Abma posted an image on Facebook on Monday showing a veterinarian checking up on one of the donkeys.
Law enforcement officials told WCBS-TV investigators know the individuals involved.
Abma added: “Everybody wants us to bring these kids up to speed and make sure that they have to deal with what they did.”
