lawmakers in Greece announced that their popular coastal donkey rides would be limited to tourists “weighing less than 100 kilograms (220 pounds) or one-fifth of the donkey’s body weight,” the law states according to CNN.
Tourists often take donkey rides along the steep and narrow terrain of the popular island of Santorini, which has prompted activists to raise concern over the animals’ well-being.

As part of the new regulations established by the Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food, the animals “should not be loaded with excessive weight for their size, age or physical condition.”

Owners must also take responsibility for the donkeys’ condition, ensuring that their health, stables, workstations, and food/water supply are all well-maintained, clean, and free from infection.
