Bayıldığımız komşu adalarda da acı gerçek... Ey insan; kendinden başka canlıyı da sevsen, uzakdan sevsen, üzerine falan binmesen, hele de yük arabası yerine koymasan, gücünü kötüye kullanıp bağlamasan, kölen yapmasan, eziyet etmesen olmaz mı🤬
PLEASE DO NOT use the #donkeys (in Santorini) for transportation…these poor animals are abused on a regular basis. The #men use sticks with nails to prod or whip them into moving along their way.
So much abuse takes place where we are helpless to stop. But this is one case where we can do something. ECONOMICS is very influential!
Donkey rides in Santorini are cruel.
It could have been the most comfortable, luxurious, exciting ride of my #life but it wouldn’t change the fact that I’d be supporting animal abuse.
Guides warn you against the experience. Animal welfare organisations have launched boycotts and “Save the Donkeys” campaigns. Watching donkey owners swearing and screaming at them and hitting them is all part of the package. My guide told us that many people break down in tears because it is such a sad experience.
The owners force the donkeys to do constant trips up and down 680 stairs all day. The poor creatures are not given enough water, food or breaks in the shade. They carry tourists who are far too heavy for them.
Alternatives to riding a donkey in Santorini
The good news is that there is a three-minute cable car you can take instead, for the same price as a donkey ride.
Please boycott any and all activities that exploit the animals!
Santorini isn’t so pretty @clyde.delong
The dark side of the Santorini donkeys. So disturbing and cruel
