Exclamation Petition - Stop Murdering Dogs and Bulls at Terrifying Festival

This is devastating beyond words. Please sign this petition guys - this NEEDS TO STOP.


la Fiesta de la Virgen de la Asuncion - is a yearly festival that allows dogs and bulls to be viciously attacked and killed by other bulls.
"A dog is tied to the back of a bull and attacked by other bulls every year in a religious festival. We need to take action in order to ensure that animals do not have to endure this sick and torturous treatment. After being tied up, the animals are callously tossed into a bullfighting ring before being chased and stampeded by the bulls.

Sadly, disturbing footage of a terrified dog being tied to a bull can be seen online, along with video of both animals bleeding profusely as they are being torn to shreds. Villagers justify the torturing and killing of the dog by claiming that it had misbehaved throughout the year."

Can we not Boycott Spanish goods as well? Spain has a number of horrific abuses like this. Recently a bull fighter left his blindfold horse to be killed by a bull. Spain needs to learn that nobody regards them as civilised until this is all stopped.

It makes one wonder as to what depths the imagination of the cruelest among us can go. This is not just cruel, it is barbaric sadism. Even trying to name it feels inadequate to its horror.

The symbol of the race ought to be a human being carrying an ax, for every human being has one concealed about him somewhere, and is always seeking the opportunity to grind it.

Many Peruvians are also angry about this violent activity: http://www.capital.com.pe/actualidad...noticia-794430

It would appear that this is not a Peruvian tradition per se. The Peruvian news is also condemning the violence towards the dogs: http://diariocorreo.pe/ciudad/critic...n-toro-585376/

The Central and South American animal protection groups are also publicizing this issue: http://www.seamosmasanimales.com/abe...ion-religiosa/

This violent abuse of dogs doesn't appear to be a Peruvian tradition per se. The Peruvian news is also condemning this act.

Unfortunately, bullfighting IS a popular activity in Peru.

The notorious dog abuse took place in the Apurimac region of southern Peru. The poverty rate in Apurimac is 78%. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apur%C3%ADmac_Region
