A marketing photo of a small kid riding on the back of a great Dane, the dog was twice the kid's size, has been lambasted for being cruel to animals. Now, a plan is afoot to ban all kids riding on the backs of all animals.
Donkey rides along the beach, an idiosyncratic pastime only done in the UK, will be banned! Local councils are happy because they don't have to clear up donkey's crap after a hard days work.
Kiddies hoping for a ride on camels, horses, sausage dogs, wild bulls, in fact any beast that has a back big enough to carry a kid, will now be banned! Dads hoping to rest their backs on a restful weekend on the beach, in the zoo, or at a fun park, will have to carry their kids instead of poor mistreated animals.
Banning rides on all animals could cause an explosion in back problems for dads, but animal welfare is more important, according to activists.
As for the unemployed animals, they will all be sent to the knackers yard and turned into glue apart from dogs, which will be offered to Korean, Chinese, and Japanese restaurants springing out of the ground in the UK like snow covered daffodils and, turned into a "Woof Woof Soup"!
