This has been long known: I think Greece does not have the political will/resources to ban these atrocities. Petitions signed and shared Animae, thank you.

Without the work they do, there is no reason to keep the donkeys. They would probably be killed. Most people can not afford to keep a working animal without it producing. They should not be abused however!
