Overweight People Banned From Donkey Rides
A burden has been lifted from the shoulders of Greece's working donkey population.
The country has banned "overweight" tourists from riding the animals on the popular island of Santorini.
The ban comes after activists complained that the donkeys were suffering spinal injuries.
Sightseers often pay to ride donkeys up steep slopes from the shore to the island's main town.
According to CNN, people wishing to ride the donkeys will now have to weigh less than 220 pounds.
