Hi, Anneke!

This is just an update on the petition "Marcelo Pamplona, mayor of Para, Brazil,
used spay/neuter funds as bounties to brutally kill dogs!", which I signed.

This is the letter I've sent to the petition's author:

"Hi, Sue!

Just to let you know, Marcelo Pamplona is the mayor of the city of Santa Cruz do Arari, in the state of Para. Para is the name of a State, so he can't be "Para's mayor".

And this is an UPDATE FROM PARA'S PUBLIC MINISTRY WEBSITE:

http://www.prpa.mpf.mp.br/news/2013/prefeitura-de-santa-cruz-do-arari-pa-tera-que-apresentar-ao-mpf-plano-de-controle-de-zoonoses

Summary:

The mayor is facing charges (punishment varies from 1 to 12 years in prison) and he was removed from office. Now the town's new mayor is going to be forced to follow the Ministry of Animal Welfare and Environment measures to prevent overpopulation (spay/neuter), under the supervision of the Public Ministry and State authorities.

The culling this "mayor from hell" was promoting is not allowed by our Federal Animal Protection Laws. Only spay and neuter are allowed to control stray animals overpopulation in Brazil.

And I'd just like to add one thing: the way that the petition's text was written lead the reader to believe that the entire population in this town was "hunting/culling" the dogs for money. I read the originals in Portuguese and that's not true. The mayor paid Public Agents and some people from the poorest parts of Marajó Island (some were farmers and some lived in shanty towns) to do it. In the original articles in Portuguese, we can see that this mayor is a BIG FAT LIAR, as he said that the population approved and was asking for this "dog hunting" to contain the overpopulation problem. He was only trying to avoid the active corruption charges on deviating public spay/neuter programs resources, so he invented this. The GREAT MAJORITY of Santa Cruz do Arari's population was totally DISGUSTED and DISAPPROVED of his attitude. Some brave people even tried to file complaints in the local police stations, but the mayor would threaten them. STILL, these people traveled to other towns so they could file complaints and have justice for these animals. Heavy bus fares are a LUXURY to people from an area where water is not potable, electricity is scarce and income per family is the worse in the country. I just wanted to make that clear, because I dislike generalizations of any kind.

I have also signed this petition on the same issue, just in case: http://www.peticaopublica.com.br/?pi=P2013N41062

Click on "Assinar Peticao", fill in your full name, city and email, then click on "Assinar Abaixo-Assinado"."

Thank you so much, dear Anneke, for all you do and for these wonderful, easy to access lists you post so we can help animals and the environment!

News on the 150 dogs rescued from the island:

www.portalorm.com.br/noticia/noticia.asp?id=665608&%7Csanta+cruz+do+arari+ong+abre+campanha+para+salvar+cachorros#.UoVqnBqUSKg

Summary: About 150 dogs were rescued in Ilha do Frances, in Santa Cruz do Arari, in the state of Para. 100 were relocated and welcomed in a shelter in the district of Outeiro, in Para. The other 50 are still under the care of Resgate sem Fronteiras rescuers from Guarulhos, Sao Paulo. So these 150 are now safe :-)
