The mayor of Colombia’s Buenavista municipality in the northern province of Sucre, Quintiliano Tapia, banned Monday the amateur bullfighting festivals known as “corralejas” following a scandal sparked by the dismembering of a live horse during one of those events.

The mayor was reacting to the public indignation that followed the airing of a video over the weekend showing how two men cut a horse to pieces that had been badly injured by a bull, all in the presence of children.

Tapia said in a statement on Blu Radio that he regretted the incident, adding that measures are being taken to identify those responsible and make them pay for what they did, and that meanwhile the running of the bulls and the “corralejas,” amateur bullfights in which anyone is allowed to take part, are banned.

“I wasn’t told what happened, but when we learned about it we…

2015 shorty tonyIt’s time for the Shorty Awards again…with your great support, last year we had tremendous success (Tony was one of the finalists in the non-human category last year) with getting the word out about Tony and the plight of captive tigers in the United States.

So…if you tweet and want to help raise awareness for Tony and the est. 5,000 plus privately owned tigers in the U.S. Nominate Tony for a Shorty Award! Twitter has been a very effective platform for networking Tony’s story and the serious issue of privately owned tigers and big cats in the United States and how we can help by supporting legislation – The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act – to end private ownership of these magnificent yet dangerous animals. Captive tigers suffer in roadside zoos, circuses, and traveling exhibitions; tigers cubs are bred for profit and used in photo & feeding ops…

‘New York Times’ Exposes Shocking Cruelty at Taxpayer-Funded Testing Facility | PETA

Life or Lunch?

Sad-CowPrompted by a shocking front-page New York Times exposé published today that revealed cruel practices at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) and the fact that thousands of animals have been left to suffer, starve, and die from treatable maladies in experimental breeding programs, PETA sent an urgent letter this morning calling on the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to suspend the facility’s operations immediately and shut down the taxpayer-funded program.

In her letter to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk likened the crude, cruel, and indefensible experiments at the center to “a twisted novel about a mad scientist.”

The comparison isn’t hard to see, given these facts:

  • Infant animals are left to die slowly, exposed to the elements, after reckless breeding experiments left them deformed, weak, and helpless.
  • Untrained staff members operate on animals, injured and sick animals are left untreated, and whistle-blowing is punished.
