Target: Gabino Cue, Governor of Oaxaca, Mexico
Goal: Ban the cruel festival that senselessly tortures and kills thousands of goats annually.
Thousands of goats are needlessly tortured and killed for entertainment every October and November. In Oaxaca, Mexico, around 5,000 to 7,000 goats are killed annually in front of a large, jeering crowd that is filled with people of all ages.
These thousands of goats endure terrible pain and die a slow death. They are forced to face this terrible ordeal while hoards of people look on. These goats can feel pain and experience fear just like us and this cruelty needs to stop.
Sign this petition and demand that this cruel form of “entertainment” is banned. These innocent animals do not deserve to be treated with such contempt any longer.
Dear Governor Cue,
Every year during the months of October and November, thousands of goats are senselessly slaughtered for entertainment. Killing an animal is not entertaining, but barbaric. The crowd watching this cruel tradition contains people of all ages, including children. Exposing children to such violence and deeming it normal is not good for their mental health.
Goats can feel pain and experience fear just like us. The 5,000 to 7,000 goats killed annually endure terrible pain and die a slow death. These innocent animals do not deserve to be treated so terribly and killed so viciously.
Please consider banning this cruel tradition and sparing countless lives from unnecessary pain and death. Some traditions are not meant to continue in today’s world and this barbaric event is one of them.
[Your Name Here]
