The horses and donkeys of Petra need our help! They are worked too hard and kept in insanitary conditions. There are scores of reports of donkeys being beaten and they are all worked too hard. I personally have seen horses with festering sores from ill-fitting girth straps. They all look ill-nourished and lack grooming and care.
They are made to wear diapers, which must lead to great discomfort, and even illness. This is also an affront to their dignity.
We the undersigned call on Jordan's Ministry for Tourism to regulate the treatment of Petra's horses and donkeys, including the banning of diapers, and appoint a monitor to ensure that regulations are adhered to.
