End cruel seaside donkey rides in Clevedon, UK

Seaside donkey rides have been around for years, and when a was a small child I liked to ride on a donkey but I wasn't old enough to realise how cruel and unnecessary they are.

Being the summer holidays, I went to our local seafront in Clevedon with my niece and nephew, where I was quite shocked to discover that they were still giving donkey rides. The weather was hot, and there was one donkey being walked up and down, carrying a child. Imagine yourself walking all day in the hot sun carrying a child, and only being allowed to stop and rest when someone else lets you. That's what these poor donkeys have to endure.

I think it's time to call it a day on donkey rides, and let them live their lives in peace and not be for used for our entertainment.

Please sign my petition now to tell my local council to stop allowing donkey rides on our local beach.
