Seek Justice for Alpacas Allegedly Left Bleeding and Screaming

Target: Patricia Benavides, Attorney General of Peru

Goal: Ensure severe legal penalties for those allegedly abusing alpacas in Peru.

Recent reports from an undercover investigation have illuminated disturbing allegations of animal cruelty at a Peruvian alpaca farm. According to these reports, workers were seen engaging in severe mistreatment of alpacas during shearing. The claims include the rough handling of animals with electric clippers and slamming them against tables, causing them to vomit from fear.

The investigation, conducted by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), reportedly revealed a gruesome scenario at the Mallkini farm. The abuse depicted in the investigation’s footage apparently includes alpacas bleeding and screaming, which has led to landmark charges against five shearers. These shearers face accusations of cruelty to domestic animals, highlighting the need for strict enforcement of animal welfare laws.

The implications of such alleged actions extend beyond the immediate suffering of the animals; they tarnish the reputation of the alpaca wool industry. The exposure of these practices has reportedly resulted in major retailers discontinuing the use of alpaca wool sourced from Mallkini. Prevent such alleged abuses and maintain ethical standards in animal handling.


Dear Attorney General Patricia Benavides,

We bring to your attention a pressing issue concerning alleged severe animal cruelty at the Mallkini alpaca farm, as detailed in a recent investigation by PETA. The findings suggest that shearers engaged in cruel practices, including the rough shearing of alpacas, slamming them against tables, and causing them distress to the extent of vomiting. Such treatment not only violates basic animal welfare standards but also the legal protections afforded to domestic animals in Peru.

The evidence presented by PETA, which led to the charging of five individuals with cruelty, seems to illustrate a clear and disturbing disregard for the well-being of these animals. The footage showing the alleged abuse has prompted major retailers to sever ties with the supplier, reflecting the broader implications of these actions on Peru’s reputation in the international market.

We, therefore, urge you to ensure that these allegations are thoroughly investigated and, if found true, to prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law. A strong legal precedent must be set to deter such behavior in the future and to demonstrate that animal cruelty will not be tolerated.
