Egypt: animal slaves for the pyramid tourism

Tourists from all over the world flock to Egypt to marvel at the Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Saqqara’s ancient burial site, and Luxor’s royal tombs, but these sites have a violent side in plain view.

PETA Asia’s latest investigation in Egypt has revealed horrific abuse of horses and camels forced to haul visitors on their backs or in carriages at the top tourist sites in the blistering heat without access to food, water, or shade. At the notorious Birqash Camel Market, which supplies camels to some of the tourist spots, animals were severely beaten with sticks.

 

They are given no breaks and are beaten and whipped into giving endless rides in the heat, even as their knees buckle and they collapse.

Handlers viciously beat animals who are simply too exhausted to go on. Workers in Giza were seen continuously beating a horse who had collapsed while being forced to haul a tourist in a carriage. They did not stop beating her until she finally managed to get back up. Eyewitnesses report that she was quickly put back to work even though she had been severely injured by the fall.
