TAKE ACTION: Demand An End to Brazil's Bizarre Festival of Torture!

Animals  (tags: HORROR, suffering, abuse, cruelty, slaughter, sadness, humans, AnimalCruelty )

- 3819 days ago -
Oxen are tormented in every conceivable way. Sometimes the helpless animals are doused with gasoline and set on fire. Pepper is thrown into their eyes, which are often gouged out. Participants break the animals' horns and legs and cut off their tails

WTF.....sometimes I do believe there are different species of human beings living on this planet.
It's completely incomprehensible to me how some people can act in this way.

Even in this "enlightened age" people still refer to animals as beasts and brutes. It is humanity, however, that deserve these titles. No other species can touch us when it comes to cruelty and depravity. We are the ultimate masters of torture and greed. And this "festival" is proof.

This is weird! I'm Brazilian (from the Northeast -Recife) and never heard abt this ignorance & cruelty. I sent it to friends there. I'm sure they'll be surprised, too. Sadly, there are bad spirits all over the world.
I've known people who said it was disgusting to see me hug my dog because "it's just a dirty animal". I think many animals are like special angels or spirits who help us. Heaven bless them!

Noted and signed, thanks Jocelyn for sending and thank you Brenda for posting. I had no idea this was going on down there. How sad and cruel for a group of people to find joy in hurting innocent animals. It would not happen on my watch. I could not stand by and let this happen if I were down there. What is wrong with these people that they feel they have to cause pain in order to celebrate this festival? This is sick and twisted behavior.
