URGENT! SIGN & SHARE! Animals Petition: ABOLISH COLOMBIAN "CORRALEJOS" WHERE HORSES & BULLS FALL VICTIM TO BLOODTHIRSTY KILLING 
Animals  (tags: Animal WelfareExtreme Animal CrueltyStop Hellish Colombian "Corralejos" BlooTAKE ACTION! ) 
 Michelle - 2 days ago - change.org 
Each January in Colombia horses are exposed to a hellish showdown against dozens of bulls rounded up by a drunken bloodthirsty mob. Chaos ensues as harassed, injured bulls turn on horses in defense. Animals with entrails spilling out are roasted & eaten.

DEAR FRIENDS:  Like the Ferra Do Boi in Brazil, hellish "corralejos" involve mind-numbing acts of barbaric cruelty against animals. Every January in the Carribe region of Colombia, bloodthirsty drunken revelers engage in heinous acts of animal abuse and murder. Along with stabbling donkeys and goats to death, horses are forced to confront dozens of tormented bulls jabbed with lances. In retaliation, the harrassed, frightened bulls are encouraged to gore the horses, who are ridden down the streets with their entrails spilling out. Many of these horses and bulls are roasted and consumed, their carcasses strewn to the street.
Witness the photo above, in which demonic monsters are relishing the hellish torture of a bull that has been tied with ropes and brutalized to the point of bleeding. This demonic, subhuman barbarity has been labled "culture" by Colombian authorities and has gone on for nearly a century with no intervention.

Colombia, like other countries around the world, relies on tourism to line its national wallet. Please immediately note the story, sign the petition, then forward and share with as many friends as possible. Tweet, post on Facebook, share with other social media sites. GET THE WORD OUT. I did not watch these videos below but have included them. The petition author posted them at Change.org. Graphic cruelty is depicted so watch with caution:
This link takes you to the Colombian president's web page. If you scroll down to the bottom, there's a link called "write to the president." Click on it and a message box pops up where you can share your comments with him. If possible, post the links above to provide evidence for your concern.

I had trouble finding direct contact email addresses for the minister of tourism and culture, but these below are what I could find for the offices of tourism and the US Embassy. If you find any other relevant contacts, post them in the comment boxes along with any comments you send to these entities so others may modify and use them:
