Suffering of Donkeys and Mules on Santorini Continues – Help Them Now!

An eyewitness investigation shows that exhausted donkeys and mules with bloody wounds are still being forced to carry tourists up and down steep, slippery steps all day long on the Greek island of Santorini.

Following an appeal by PETA Germany, the Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food banned any person weighing over 100 kilograms from riding the animals, but they're still being forced to carry tourists of all weights.

Many donkeys and mules have painful wounds – both fresh injuries and old, untreated ones that have scarred over – on their abdomens caused by ill-fitting saddle girths and other inadequate equipment. For them, every step means pain.

Please sign below to ask the Greek minister for agricultural development and food and the Greek minister for tourism to ban cruel donkey and mule rides on Santorini immediately.
