Religious Festival in Peru

No country wants to be known for such cruelty to animals. The issue has been brought to the attention of a number of Peruvian officials following online awareness campaigns and I hope that they will take these international concerns about animal welfare laws very seriously.

 

In addition, I understand that the President of Peru has also been presented with the following petition: https://www.change.org/p/detengan-este-maltrato-animal-en-per%C3%BA?recruiter=323352298&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=share_twitter_responsive

 

I hope that these representations will bring about consideration and reflection by the festival organisers and action by the appropriate Peruvian officials.
