To the President of Bolivia, Mr. Juan Evo Morales Ayma

Dear Mr. President:

As a member of the International Community it has been brought to my attention that a group known as the “Red Ponchos”, made up of radical Aimara peasants loyal to you, have beheaded two dogs as a threatening signal to those members of the Opposition who “do not want change” in the country.

In the twenty-first century in civilized countries, acts such as this cannot be considered a ritual, nor are they acceptable under any circumstances as a form of protest.

May I remind you, Sir, that the Universal Declaration of Animal Rights states as follows:

Article 2
a) All animal life has the right to be respected.

Article 3
a) Animals must not be submitted to ill-treatment or to cruel acts.

Article 5
a) All animals belonging to a species traditionally living in man’s environment have the right to live and grow in the conditions, and with the freedom, corresponding to their species.

Article 10
a) No animal must be exploited by man for profit.
b) Exhibitions and shows using animals are incompatible with the dignity of animals.

Article 11
Every act which results in the death of an animal is an act of biocide, that is, a crime against life.

Article 14
a) Organizations dedicated to the protection and safeguarding of animals must be represented at Governmental level.
b) The rights of animals must be defended by Law, in the same way as the rights of man.

Therefore, I hereby REQUEST that you bring to bear the full force of the established Laws on the people who carried out this macabre act, as well as taking all necessary measures to guarantee that there is no repetition of deplorable incidents such as this.
