In Egypt and Morocco horses and donkeys are being used as working animals. Donkeys usually transport freights and pull carts, whereas horses are often used to draw the tourist buggies of which there are hundreds in tourist cities.
Too many of these horses and donkeys face neglect and abuse. Animals are being overloaded, beaten and underfed. It is heart breaking to see these hard working animals with open sores and so thin their ribs are visible.
The government needs to regulate the treatment of these working animals and enforce it. Please sign the petition and let the governments of Egypt and Morocco know they cannot condone mistreatment of donkeys and horses any longer.
