Donkeys naturally avoid showing distress, meaning it isn’t always easy to see they are suffering.
Donkeys and mules are put to work in tourism all over the world, whether used as taxis, for treks or to carry luggage. While The Donkey Sanctuary does not actively promote the use of donkeys and mules in any form of tourism we do understand their importance in helping thousands of people to earn a living.
Donkeys naturally avoid showing distress, meaning it isn’t always easy to see they are suffering. As a result people often take advantage of donkeys’ hardworking traits, and at times they can be overworked, overloaded or even beaten.
We are asking for tourists to put themselves ‘in their hooves’ in order to question how they would feel working under the same conditions.
