Ban the consumption of cats in the festival Curruñao (Peru)!
In a town called La Quebrada in San Luis de Cañete (Peru), each September 19, is held a grim and savage "festival" in honor of the virgin Iphigenia, called "Curruñao" where they kill and cook for cats be "tasted" by residents and tourists. This "festival" is not only approved and consented by the local authorities and the government but also by many media and some politicians in Peru who see death and consumption of this animal as funny and admissible.
This "festival" is illegal because it is against the law for the protection of animals No. 27265. However, it seems that we live in the stone age where everyone does what he wants without regard to anything or anyone.Please Watch "Campaigning for the rights of cats" The illegal barbaric so-called " festival of cat meat" done by a bunch of savage primitives..http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-19846516

EXAMPLE LETTER TO:
Lady Mayor DELIA VICTORIA SOLORZANO CARRIÓN
Mayor of San Luis de Cañete and MINISTER OF HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT OF PERU AND AUTHORITIES..
Through this desire cordially greet and also express my rejection of the celebration that takes place every year, on September 21 in "La Quebrada", San Luis de Cañete. We refer to the festival "Curruñao" where cats are killed for consumer. tolerance causes us concern the former mayor, Paulino Urbinano Antezana, the current mayor of San Luis DELIA VICTORIA SOLORZANO CARRIÓN and national and regional authorities to date not prohibit the consumption of cats in this festival as this not only goes against the health of people, as the cat meat is unfit for human consumption, and against the law of animal protection No. 27265, but also makes us look like barbarians to Peruvians and backward to the world. Such abominable fact, the killing of cats for food, has an origin and demagogic politician only started in the 90s by Jorge Brignole Santolalla, former mayor of Cañete and person disreputable, to ingratiate himself with the community cañetana. It is absolutely false that it is a tradition, as the authors of that excuse festival because no African community in America that eat cats, only the Peruvian group. Knowing that the mayor of San Luis, sensitive, reasonable and administered by the Municipality with the idea of making the citizens of San Luis de Cañete reach the highest level of quality of life in a modern district, healthy and developed, we ask them to take measures in accordance with Law No. 27,265 to ban the slaughter, because it is specified as follows: Section 1. - Declare the national interest to protect all species of domestic animals (....) against any act of cruelty caused or permitted by man, directly or indirectly, to cause them unnecessary suffering , injury or death. Section 4. - Obligation of authorities and animal protection institutions. 4.1 The state and institutions duly recognized animal shelters are required to ensure the proper treatment, health and respect for life and rights animals. Article 19 °. - pets slaughter for human consumption. The sacrifice of domestic animals not intended for human consumption shall be made only because of physical disability, accident, illness or extreme old age, except that pose a risk to human health. In such cases must be slaughtered by the competent authorities as specified in the regulations. Based on the above request that the festival is not authorized "Curruñao" and a resolution Municipal prohibited. Also impose appropriate sanctions on those who try to carry it out, sponsor and / or promote. Hoping that my request to be attended farewell. Sincerely, your name, Country
