This must be stopped!

And Now!!

Please, good people, this is going to be a very tough read, especially coming immediately after yesterday’s example of terrible cruelty.

But these instances of such disgusting behavior have to be shared.  For without sharing them then there will be no end to them.

I am indebted to Change.org for carrying this.

Sign: Stop Tying Dogs to Bulls in Horrific Bullfight ‘Punishment’

Lady Freethinker

The village of Chalhuani in Peru has a horrific annual tradition where a dog is tied to the back of a bull at a bullfight as punishment for “bad” behavior. Both of the animals are then painfully killed during the fight.

Video posted by the Mirror exposed this cruel Virgen de la Asuncion tradition in action, sparking global outrage. The video shows a dog being forced onto the back of a bull while it yelps and barks in fear. The terrified dog is tied spread-eagle to the bull, with the ropes so tight it cannot move.

The bull then enters the ring, where it is viciously killed. All the while, the dog is trapped on the bull’s back, unable to save itself from an excruciating death.

One villager tried to justify the cruelty in an interview with a local news station:

“We pick a dog that was disobedient over the past 12 months and has caused trouble,” the villager said. “As a community we see this as a fitting punishment for the dog’s bad behavior.”

But “bad” behavior is no excuse for animal cruelty. No dog deserves this horror.

These bullfights are barbaric and must be stopped. Sign this petition to urge the Peruvian ambassador to the United States to end this terrible practice, so no more animals suffer this horrific fate.

This petition will be delivered to: Ambassador Miguel Castilla

Good people!

This is the letter to be delivered to the Ambassador:

Letter to Ambassador Miguel Castilla
Stop Tying Dogs to Bulls’ Backs in Cruel Bullfighting ‘Punishment’
The village of Chalhuani in Peru has a horrific annual tradition where a dog is tied to the back of a bull at a bullfight as punishment for “bad” behavior. Both of the animals are then painfully killed during the fight.
These bullfights are barbaric and must be stopped. Not only is animal cruelty an unacceptable form of punishment for dogs, but bulls do not deserve to be forced into fights, where they are tortured and killed for entertainment.
I urge the Peruvian government to ban this horrific practice at once, so no more animals must suffer for this cruel “tradition.”

Please not only sign this petition yourself but share it as far and wide as you can.

      1. It links to the question from Marina. Why is it so hard for some individuals to see the harm in what they do?

        That’s before turning it into a tradition! Give me strength! 😡

    1. Frankly, this is about as extreme an example of cruelty towards animals that one could imagine. I do so hope the Petition causes the Peruvian government to ban the practice. But I’m not holding my breath!

  1. How would any type of bad behavior from a dog in any way be justified as proper punishment by tying the dog to a bull????? And since the bull is even in the equation as well. What the F did the bull do to be killed in such a manor as it is. Why hurt animals in such a horrific manner. What the F. ( I am avoiding the swear word ).
    Why not simply alter the event itself …. instead of stopping the killing. Alter what gets killed in the even, so the event can still go on. To which the question is what is the alternative item that gets killed. .
    Well how about a horrific criminal. ..like a mass murderer or child predictor or a convicted murderer of children. These criminals deserve this sort of dealth over an animal that has been accused of being bad in its behavior. Just a suggestion.

    1. Just been across to your place and like what I saw. But just now going to wait a little while before reciprocating with a follow of your place. (Just must get on top of a few very overdue tasks!)
