A Costa Rican artist found himself in hot water with the animal protection people in his home country after using a starving, sick street dog as part of an exposition in Managua, Nicaragua, in August. Guillermo “Habacuc” Vargas allegedly found the dog tied up on a street corner in a poor Nicaragua barrio and brought it to the showing.
He tied the dog, according to furious animal lovers, in a corner of the salon where it died after a day. Habacuc’s exhibition included a legend spelled out in dog food reading “You are what you read,” photos and an incense burner that burned an ounce of marijauna and 175 “rock’ of crack cocaine. In the background, according to reports, the Sandista national anthem played backwards.
According to the artist, his “art” was a tribute to Natividad Canda, a Nicaraguan burglar killed in Costa Rica by two rottweilers guarding property he had entered at night. The incident caused friction between the two countries. Habacuc told the daily La Nacion, “I won’t say the dog died. The importance to me is the hypocracy of the people where an animal is the focus of attention where people come to see art but not when it’s in the street starving to death.”
“The same thing happened with poor Natividad Canda. The people sympathized with him only after he was dead,” the artist added.
The artist apparently is unaware that at least three large, active organizations are dedicated in Costa Rica to the protection of animals and that several persons have been prosecuted for cruelty to animals. They are hampered in their efforts by the old Hispanic customs of disregard for animal welfare and by a lack of funding.
If this act was done to a human it would be murder, but a dog, no one gives a f##k in that country. How many of us readers would of cut the dog free, forcibly removed him and done everything physically possible? Everyone that looked art the dog and did nothing is a culprit to murder.
It’s at times like these where I wish had a shed load of money and could fly over to Costa Rica and meet Guillermo Habacuc Vargas – and tell him exactly what I think.
So true Patricia, i also find it hard to believe that NO ONE did anything to help this poor dog. For my part they are as guilty as the SOB !
you know if we did this to a nother person we would go to jail.I think that the sob should be put on that chain and starve just like that poor dog did. shame on the people who just stood by and did nothing to save that dog. they need to be put o the chain right next to Guillermo Habacuc Vargas and strave to.Whats up with the dog food on the wall why the heck didnt they give it to the dog?
how awfull, i agree the sob, chained up and starved,
I am sat here with my two dogs and I cannot imagine what that poor doggie went through - it makes me ashamed to be human.
Thank you Patricia.

make me wonder why some people poor all there money into helping dogs and cats when our human children are in so much need. ..
god help us.
help Africa this Christmas. PEOPLE are dieing
“How can you justify spending your time helping animals when there are so many people who need help?”
There are very serious problems in the world that deserve our attention, and cruelty to animals is one of them. We should try to alleviate suffering wherever we can. Helping animals is not any more or less important than helping human beings—they are both important. Animal suffering and human suffering are interconnected.
If you want to help starving children do so.
None of us need to justify to you who we help or why.
so ***k off! Stop spending your time telling people who to help and get off your butt and help those kids.
and stop being a troll, just joined today to come straight to this thread, must be a friend of the so called "artist"
Hey Beter, what do these letters P.E.T.A. stand for??

We are here because this is where our hearts bring us. Don't think you're going to disuade anyone here from helping animals just because YOU think people are more important.
Sounds like a typical egocentric to me.
I don't think anyone here actually said that animals are more important than people. The sentiment seemed to me to be that animals and people are on the same playing field.
To be perfectly honest, I won't send a dime to Africa, or anywhere else unless it's to support a birth control program. Why on EARTH would you bring a child into a world where poverty, starvation, and deadly disease are the norm? It boggles the mind.
Now, I will apoligize for contributing to this non-topic discussion. Here's hoping that the artist who starved the dog will suffer a similar fate.
PEOPLE AND ANIMALS ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT!!!!
WE PEOPLE ARE AN ANIMAL KIND
EXCEPT, WE ARE THE WORST!!!!
CAUSE THEY TELL US WE ARE THE SMARTEST OF ALL BEINGS AND STILL WE LEAVE OTHER HUMANS TO DIE OF HUNGER OR DISEASES.THE NATIONS TOGETHER COULD PREVENT THIS!!!!
BUT OUR LUST FOR MONEY AND POWER IS ABOVE ALL!!!!

And by the way, what makes you think that anyone in this group doesn't also try to help starving children in the world? We talk about animal abuse here, because it is a PETA group. Like others have said, go join a group that helps save the starving children. There's lots of them on this network.
I think it's funny how the only group you cared to join was this one. If you really cared about those kids, you'd join a group specifically for that purpose. You are only hurting your cause.
