Stop Torturing and Killing Bulls at Annual Festival

Bull PETA

Target: Governor Javier Duarte, Veracruz, Mexico

Goal: End the annual brutal and senseless killing of bulls at the Fiesta de la Virgen de la Candelaria.

Ten bulls are unleashed onto the streets for people to torture and taunt every year in the town of Tlacotalpan, Mexico. The bulls are the main even in the Fiesta de la Virgen de la Candelaria, which is a week long religious celebration.

The bulls are pumped with alcohol and have stones, bottles and fists thrown at them as they run through the streets terrified. One resident even stated that the people will cut the bulls’ ears off. In some cases, stray dogs are tied to the bulls and are dragged around.

Most of the bulls will die, but those who survived are released into a pasture. Sign this petition and demand that these bulls’ lives are spared. This barbaric event condones torture and senseless pain and it is time it be put to an end.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Duarte,

Fiesta de la Virgen de la Candelaria is a week-long festival that is celebrated by inflicting pain on another being. Every year, ten bulls are pumped with alcohol and then released to the streets. While the bulls are running scared in the streets, people kick, punch, cut, and throw bottles and stones at the innocent bulls.

Most of the bulls die during this event, but those who live are released into a pasture. This event is barbaric and endorses senseless torture and pain upon innocent beings. Please considering banning this event in the future. It is time this savage event be put to an end.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  5. THIS IS JUST AN EXCUSE TO BE ABLE TO TORTURE AND KILL THINGS FOR FUN, WHAT A CRUEL WORLD, AND SICK PEOPLE, I JUST WONDER WHAT THIS WORLD IS COMING TO.

  6. “So many people insist they are against animal abuse, cruelty, suffering and the inhumane treatment of animals, yet they don’t understand they are actively engaging in and supporting egregious suffering, abuse, cruelty and inhumane treatment when they eat animals and their ‘by-products.’ If you are against cruelty, suffering and inhumane treatment, then you go vegan. It’s just that simple.” – Sarah Kiser

  7. Governor JAVIER DUARTE, Veracruz, Mexico: …AND YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS/TORTURERS OF BULLS HAVE THE NERVES TO CALL THIS “FIESTA DE LA VIRGEN, in TLACOTALPAN …” which means VIRGIN MARY who is is the mother of Jesus. And you call yourselves “catholics”????????? You probably go to church every Sunday, and during the “fiesta” you catholics run after bulls to torture and slaughter God’s creatures and you think it’s funny.
    WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?????????????
    I bet you and your bull killers are happy you were not born bulls because you too would end up lying down on your side in your blood on the street.
    Stop Torturing and Killing Bulls at Annual Festival.
