STOP ANIMAL ABUSE OF DONKEYS AND HORSES IN SANTORINI

Santorini is absolutely beautiful, but here is some honest truth that shook me to tears. The island has a long path that stretches from the port below to the city centre at the top of the volcanic rock.
Despite the fact that it's only a 30 minute walk (depending on how fast you are - that's how long it took me) or 2 minutes by cable car, these donkeys are used as cruel transportation for people who want the 'real Greek' experience.
These donkeys are forced to stand around in the sun in their own faeces at the side of the path and all they do is go up and down, up and down carrying people who are too lazy to just walk or take cable car. In addition, the farmers give them lashings to make them go faster up the path when carrying tourists etc.
I'm so so saddened by this, even old donkeys who have probably been doing this all their lives haven't been given to the shelters yet. So if you ever go to Santorini - or any other place that offers rides on animals such as donkeys or elephants etc. please, please do not support this mindless and unnecessary animal torture.
You can see the sadness in their eyes. Animals are not at our disposal, nor are they for our use.
Please Sign and Make a change.
