Shocking footage shows donkeys on the idyllic Greek island of Santorini being whipped as they carry overweight tourists up 500 steps.

A clip released by activist group PETA shows donkeys and mules being used as taxis to haul heavy holidaymakers up the island's picturesque cobblestones.

Harrowing video of mistreated animals shows flies crawling over open sores caused by poorly fitting saddles and a handler striking one of the creatures with a stick and violently yanking at its reins.

It comes as the animal rights group accuses officials of being in 'clear breach' of Greek animal welfare laws by 'denying the animals water or a place to cool down'.
