Research has found that animal mistreatment deters British tourists from foreign holiday destinations.
Over half of British adults say that if they saw an animal being mistreated abroad on holiday it would put them off visiting that country again, according to a new YouGov poll.
The poll was commissioned by the international animal charity SPANA (the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad), which receives countless letters from holidaymakers every year about seeing animals abroad in poor conditions or being mistreated.
Morocco is a popular destination for British tourists but what many don't realise is that animals are still widely abused there. Thousands of donkeys, horses and mules are forced to work and other animals such as monkeys are used as performing animals.
Ann Widdecombe went to investigate with the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad.
