Animal welfare information regarding donkey rides on Coney Beach
While the seasonal donkey rides are in operation at Coney Beach, officers from the Shared Regulatory Service do carry out welfare checks to ensure the operator is working within the conditions of their license in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act.
The donkey rides remain a private arrangement between the operator and the owners of the fun fair, who also maintain and manage Coney Beach, and officers will continue to monitor the welfare of the animals. Anyone who is concerned about an animal’s welfare can report it to Shared Regulatory Services by calling 0300 123 6696 or emailing us via our Contact Us page
