Subject: Peru: BAN Torturing & Eating Cats & Kittens!

Dear Madam, Sir:

I am writing to express my vehement opposition to the torturous cat consumption "festival" that takes place every September
 
19-21 in "La Quebrada" San Luis de Canete, Peru. 
This horrific spectacle referred to as the festival "Curruñao" which entails the torture and murder of cats and kittens
for human consumption each year by tourists and locals in homage to the virgin "Iphigenia" is in direct violation of
Peruvian animal welfare law and has brought great shame upon your nation.
 
The cats consumed are first tortured and mutilated previous to their death as according to participants and advocates
of this brutality the flesh of an animal who suffers prior to its killing serves as an "aphrodesiac" upon consumption.
Thus, the cats are killed in the most barbaric of methods, including drowning, burning, beating, stomping, skinning alive and
beheading.
In one photo a kitten is seen tied to a post by a harness as firecrackers are lit beneath her;
children are shown in the background of this photo, witnessing the horror at this event,
holding their ears to protect against the sound.

Paulino Antezana Urbinano, the current mayor of San Luis Delia Victoria Solorzano Carrion and national and
regional authorities to date have not moved to actively prohibit torture and consumption of cats in this festival.
Reports claim that authorities find the torture and killing of cats during this horrifying "celebration" amusing!
The decision of local leadership to turn a blind eye to the cruelty and barbarity of this event not only blatantly violates
Animal Protection Act No. 27265 but exposes the public to health risks associated with the eating of domesticated animals
who are subject to disease.

Many participants advocate for the protection of this unholy event claiming that this so-called "festival" is based on "tradition."
 It is absolutely false that the practice of torturing and killing cats is a "tradition" in this region,
as there are no African communities in the Americas that eat cats. 
The idea to kill cats for consumption does not historically originate from a community of African survivors,
but in fact originates from a demagogic politician of the 90s named Jorge Brignole Santolalla,
former mayor of Cañete, who worked to curry favor with the community of Cañetana.
Votes and greed are at the bottom of this cruel and demonic "festival."
The good name of your nation is shamed when support is given to a spectacle that celebrates and advocates
the torture and abuse of any animal for any reason.
Take leadership and exercise your authority to support Peruvian laws advocating for the protection of
all species of domestic animals against any act of cruelty caused or permitted by man,
directly or indirectly that causes them unnecessary suffering, injury or death,
particularly in the case of cats tortured and consumed during this bloody, shameful event.

DO NOT AUTHORIZE requests that the festival "Curruñao" take place this year or any year forthcoming.
Prohibit the practice of cat torture and killing under any circumstance for any reason.
Impose appropriate sanctions against those who attempt to carry out, sponsor and/or promote the barbaric killing of cats
in this and any other locale under your jurisdiction in Peru.
 
Sincerely:

humans have no right to torture any other animals. your festival is beyond reprehensible; it is evil. cats are sentient beings like we are. you must stop this, imagine the fear and pain these innocent cats feel; imagine this being done to you. i and others will hound you to the ends of the earth until this festival and all other animal torture in peru is banned,

this is just an excuse to inflict pain, suffering and death on animals that these folks do NOT like in the first place in the name of the saint or culture they so choose to worship. Let's not forget slavery, rapes, cruelty of all forms , arrogance and war have been with the human race since we ever walked on earth. So using this is only a mindless excuse by the people to the thoughtless ones.

I know men rules or think by their stomachs,but there are certain things we do not eat like other humans and animals that our fellow human beings or neighbors call pets !

The only think line between the civilized and the salvages is certain things the civilized ones do NOT cross, do or eat !
