Noted and "signed".

(Even though a "signature" without a comment carries less "weight", I did not leave a comment because I am not sure what effect a comment in English (or Croatian) would have on a petition in Spanish and (at its present level of reliability) computer translation does not produce results that are good enough for the final version.)

S & N #369 the picture of Arturo just breaks my heart! Animals are killed to feed an already over populated world with us humans? They are also used for "entertainment" be it from bullfights to hunters sports. What is wrong with us? Are we that hard wired to kill. LIBREN A ARTURO - CABRONES COBARDES!
