Sign the Petition to

The President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto.

To the president of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto.

Mr. President, you can stop this. 

For the sake of Mexico you need to stop the "Torneo de Lazo" in Yucatan.  To witness this level of violence promotes more violence. Your country is already punished by an ever increasing wave of violence. The people of Mexico are suffering this violence every day.  Tourism in Mexico is suffering the effects of this violence by the decreasing numbers of tourist visiting Mexico because of it.  Torneo de Lazo only adds to a tarnished image that you as president must improve.  Besides repairing Mexico's image this is the decent and humane thing to do.  We expect you to do the right thing. The murder and torture of innocent animals should not be entertainment for your people. This is neither culture nor tradition, this is public, shameful sadism.

The people who organize and participate in "Torneo de Lazo" must be sanctioned severely.

This spectacle is horrible and cruel.

Please stop it now.

How this will help

People should sign because animal torture is wrong.  Because inciting feelings of violence in the public is wrong.  Because teaching that violence is fun is wrong.
