Your Voice is Urgently Needed To Permanently Ban Ferra Du Boi Ox Torture in Brazil!
2 years ago
| VALLEE'S PETITIONS/NEWS

Dear Friends:  From February to March and throughout the Easter week of April, villagers in over thirty coastal counties of Santa Catarina, Brazil engage in the ritualized, protracted torture of oxen purchased by wealthy politicians. Such is the sadistic link that binds those in power to their vampiric constituents, whose bloodlust results in the ungodly torture of hundreds of oxen and other animals each year during Spring.

In sum, oxen are starved, released and system-atically tortured for DAYS ON END by crazed drunken villagers. Men and women both participate; children are encouraged to visit torture upon smaller animals such as donkeys and goats. During this horrific display of inhumanity, oxen are chased and tortured with stones, knives, sticks and lances; their eyes rubbed with salt and gouged out; their horns and tails set on fire; their legs and necks broken. During brief periods of "respite" during this relentless "game" of torture, the animals are given sea water to drink. This crime against nature takes place for DAYS at a time before the "relief" of death is visited upon the suffering animal; the longer the torture, the better in the eyes of these monsters.

Photos bear witness to exhausted oxen drowning themselves in the ocean to escape the degenerate vampires who relentlessy and viciously pursue them. Nor has the wrath stopped at oxen. During a short ban on the "ritual" in 1997, angry villagers enraged at law makers horrifically maimed and mutilated a farmer's horse in retaliation. So badly was the animal beaten and broken that it had to be humanely euthanized.

We CAN bring a permanent end to this grotesque, unholy cruelty....but it's going to take more than just signing a few petitions. We need to BOMBARD the governor of Santa Catarina, Brazil and Brazilian embassies across the globe with emails demanding there be a PERMANENT BAN on Farra Du Boi cruelty against oxen and other animals. In 1997, these "festivals" of unholiness were deemed unlawful, yet for decades, the governor and authorities have turned a blind eye. WSPA Brazil has continued documenting the cruelty, but no permanent end to this madness has been established.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN CONTACTING THE GOVERNOR OF SANTA CATARINA AND BRAZILIAN EMBASSIES TO DEMAND A PERMANENT END TO THE FARRA DU BOI. The link directly below will take you to email contact addresses, a form letter, and a link to all Brazilian embassies. Petitions raise awareness but too often fall through the cracks! It only takes a few moments to copy and paste the form letter, which you can easily modify and personalize. Please also sign the two petitions below, the second of which desperately needs more signatures. WE CAN DO THIS TOGETHER! TY Dearly! For the animals, Michelle >^..^<

The ox is confined/starved for days. To increase frenzy food/water are placed within sight but out of reach. The Farra begins when the ox is driven from a pen & chased through the streets by crowds wielding stones, knives, lances. Days of torture ensue.

Easter is arriving... Unfortunately, every year, along with the Easter bunny's happiness comes the ox's sadness. In an act of profound cruelty, Farra do Boi ("Ox Fun") involves the torture and killing of several oxen in more than thirty communities.
