More about Bolivia

The videos are terrible (WARNING!)

ENGLISH

1. Two dogs were beheaded in front of television cameras.

2. During carnival and religious celebrations, hundreds of wild endangered
species animals are sacrificed, for festive clothing, renewed each year.

3. A sub-lieutenant of the army brutally assassinates a dog, during a training
session in knife-stabbing. (watch video, WARNING: don't if you are sensitive,

ientes.html
)

4. The military skin a live crocodile. (watch video, WARNING: don't if you are

5. In a macabre ritual, military disembowel a live dog. (watch video, WARNING:

pg
)

7. A dog is tortured and crucified, no one knows why or by whom. (see photos at

8. It is customary practice of the Cochabamba Municipal Kennel's personnel
(Zoonosis), to abandon the animals during week-ends, without water or food. They
now threaten to kill 8 dogs, left in deplorable conditions this past week-end.
It was discovered that the Zoonosis Chief's dog had his ears and tail brutally
cut off (with untreated wounds), for "experiments" and because "I can do
whatever I want with my dog" (actual quote). Even dogs with owners looking
desperately for them, mysteriously "disappear".

9. At Solomon Klein Hospital in Cochabamba, 3,000 anti-rabies vaccines were
burnt, which made the municipal veterinarians come out and start killing every
dog, covering up the vaccine disaster to SEDES (Government Health Officials).

10. Cats and dogs which present a nuisance, or are no longer wanted, are simply
hung by the neck in houses or trees, in sight of everyone.

11. All kinds and species of animals are poisoned throughout the year, with
strychnine, thus forming a "death chain", endangering public health and damaging
the environment - this goes on in Sucre, Potosi, Oruro, Cochabamba, Las Minas
and other departments.

For all this and much more, and for a Law of Animal Protection to be finally
enforced in Bolivia, which will punish animal abusers as criminals, please sign
this Petition, which will be presented with a Letter to President Evo Morales
and his government.

This is horrible. Hasn't anyone taken action against this. My heart cries for those animals. I couldn't stop my tears when I saw the picture of those bastard with that white dog. I thought it was a fake one. I didn't have the stomach to watch the videos.
