URGENT! Each year in a town called La Quebrada in San Luis de Cañete Peru, a grim and savage "festival" takes place in honor of the virgin Iphigenia, called "Curruñao." During this so-called "festival" of horror, cats are killed and cooked to be "tasted" by residents and tourists. This "festival" is not only approved of by local authorities and government officials but is also supported by many media outlets and politicians in Peru who see the death and consumption of cats as funny and admissible. PLEASE SIGN, SHARE AND FORWARD TO ALL! CATS ARE NOT CUISINE! Michelle

Petition Title:  Mayor of San Luis de Cañete Peru: Ban the Consumption of Cats in the Festival Curruñao

In a town called La Quebrada in San Luis de Cañete (Peru), each September 19, is held a grim and savage "festival" in honor of the virgin Iphigenia, called "Curruñao" where they kill and cook for cats be "tasted" by residents and tourists. This "festival" is not only approved and consented by the local authorities and the government but also by many media and some politicians in Peru who see death and consumption of this animal as funny and admissible.

This "festival" is illegal because it is against the law for the protection of animals No. 27265. However, it seems that we live in the stone age where everyone does what he wants without regard to anything or anyone.

You can see here a note about the "festival"

While unfortunately there are many animals that are consumed, we as animal advocates, we must not allow a species is added to the list. Other than that the cat is an animal to be domesticated for companionship and not for food. Also, some cats hunt rats or mice to eat, the meat is raw and therefore can carry toxoplasmosis therefore the Ministry of Health should do something about it and disavow this festival.

Send your letter of rejection "Curruñao". You can be the model below or your own letter. You can also send a letter by mail to Main Square S / N San Luis, Cañete. Lima Peru. It also calls the mayor to express your discomfort and concern for this cruelty to phone (+00511) 284-4110 Annex 21. Or you can send messages to your facebook staff
