I found this on newly "submitted news". It is a story that needs to be shared and hopefully resolution will come to this family.

URGENT!!!!PLEASE SIGN Only a few days to stop Toro de la Vega, so please sign and share 21 petitions

 

 

 

 

 Only a few days to stop Toro de la Vega, so please sign and share 21 petitions in this photo.

 

What is Toro de la Vega? Every year, (this year scheduled for11 September,2012) one of the most bestial rituals takes place in the Kingdom of Spain : El Toro de la Vega of Tordesillas.
Toro de la Vega” a “fiesta” which consists of a hundred or more men armed with lances, harass the animal with their thrus

 

ting lances until the poor thing, bleeding profusely, riddled with holes, its flesh torn with the stabbing lances, can go no further and as he collapses someone sticks a dagger behind his head to then cuts off his testicles. This often happens when he is still alive, some witnesses have claimed. It is a slow form of torture, watched by a rowdy multitude of spectators, a sadistic form of fun for slaughters. And parents take their children to see and learn from this gruesome event
This indecent event has taken place for three centuries, except for some years when it was prohibited; what is incredible is that it was illegal until 1999 when the Junta de Castilla and Leon incomprehensibly legalized it. 
Most petitions are in Spanish, we're sorry but it's not possible to post their translation here, but they're all to stop/ban this cruel "tradition"

The Daily Mail reported about a 27-year old woman named Stacey Lockhurst who denied food and water to her German Shepherd puppy, named Jack, for seven months which lead to the dog's death. This is obvious animal cruelty and almost pee-meditated murder.

Subject: Univ. of Florida




 

Dear Sir, dear Madam:

 

 

 

The Humane Society or the United States (HSU donates money to the University of Florida (UF) a well-known primate research complex!!

 

They also have a campus slaughterhouse.

 

UF continues to do animal testing while the rest of the world is using non-animal alternatives.

 

HSUS believes that because they send money to a 'different building on campus', they are not being hypocritical!

 

In fact HSUS is not only condoning animal testing as acceptable by letting their name become synonymous with primate torture, but they are also accepting global support for supposedly fighting animal testing!

SEE THE LATEST FROM A UF WHISTLEBLOWER:
http://emptyallcages.com/category/university-of-florida-2/

This is what HSUS says about helping to end lab animal suffering. Couldn’t they have told UF no money until there’s no more animal testing? Isn’t THAT what an animal welfare organization would do? 

“If animal experimentation was the hallmark of 20th century biomedical research, sophisticated non-animal methods are likely to characterize 21st century research. Many humane state-of-the-art alternatives to animal experiments have already been shown to be effective in advancing medical progress, cutting research costs, and eliminating animal suffering.

The HSUS is at the forefront of promoting these research methods and their continued development, as well as ending some of the most inhumane research practices. Until the day when animals are no longer used in harmful experiments, the HSUS, with your help, also strives to gain stronger legal protection for animals used in research, and seeks to limit animal use and suffering. Right now, approximately95% of the animals used for research aren't afforded even the minimal protections of the Animal Welfare Act.”

THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA ALSO HAS A SLAUGHTERHOUSE 
The Independent Alligator interviewed a butcher there: He said he tries to instill his passion for butchering in his pupils. “We enjoy it so much,” he said. “It really is a rush.” 

http://www.demotix.com/news/599893/tommy-estevez-fun-loving-butcher/all-media

http://www.alligator.org/news/campus/article_01e91e5e-b9c4-11e1-adb8-0019bb2963f4.html

The bottom line is that’s what those involved with archaic animal research will be able to say- it must be OK since HSUS gives to UF. I think HSUS should pull their money from UF until UF bans animal testing. PLEASE help me ensure the HSUS doesn’t become UF blood money by contacting HSUS corporate leadership today. Your letter can make a difference as a voice for innocent animals trapped in a brutal sadistic unnecessary laboratory!

Thank you for your immediate attention to these animals!
