Santorini Donkeys – NFA team member attacked and almost thrown off 1,000-foot cliff!

We bring you URGENT NEWS from Greece: our team was viciously attacked while trying to help donkeys on the Greek island of Santorini.

Last year, Network for Animals helped expose the shocking cruelty inflicted on the donkeys there. The authorities promised the donkeys food and water, and no heavy loads.

A year later, nothing has been done and the cruelty to donkeys continues without mercy.

While our team was trying to film the donkeys laboring up a 1,000-foot cliff, carrying heavy tourists, two team members were savagely attacked by a wild group of ten, stick-wielding men.

Our team was shoved and kneed, while being threatened as they were pushed towards the cliff edge

Horrifyingly, the attackers tried to throw a team member off a 1,000-foot (300 meter) cliff, until an NFA team member rescued him.


The owner will lead the animal to the edge of the cliff and throw it down. These men feel nothing for life.

They tried to do the same to us!

Santorini’s donkeys are mistreated every day. They are made to climb the steep cliff, in the baking sun with no food or water, often carrying heavy, overweight tourists.

The authorities promised that they would stop it, but it’s now one year later and nothing has been done. The donkeys are as badly-off as ever, still forced to repeatedly climb the cliff in the baking sun, and still without food or water (so they won’t soil the path and upset tourists!).i

In the name of tourism this needs to STOP!
