Back to STOP THE SADISTIC BULL OF FIRE FESTIVAL!

Bull Torture and Killing Ritual to Go Ahead-Take Action!

The First Fruits Festival of Ukweshwama is to go ahead this weekend in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. The bull will suffer a terrible death which can last up to 40 minutes. This event is closely guarded, but photographic evidence has revealed unfathomable, sickening cruelty and violence during the ‘cultural event.’ The images portray a protracted debauchery of twisting the bull by its genitals, wringing it's neck, gouging out the eyes, tearing of the tail and pulling the tongue out.
Prince Zulu has already been quoted as saying:
"This year’s ceremony hasn’t received the same hostilities as those seen last year!"
Please take the actions below, we can't stop this but we can condemn such a savage and sickening event.
We must not remain silent and let these savages believe the Internatinal community accepts such shocking cruelty!

SAMPLE MAIL TO MODFIY AND SEND:

Dear Sir,

I would like to express my deep regret about learning of an extreme case of animal cruelty planned to be conducted during the First Fruits Festival of Ukweshwama, which takes place in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.
Public awareness of this savage ritual involving the killing of a bull by men with their bare hands is quickly spreading worldwide. Networking sites such as YouTube and Facebook, and media sites are exposing this practice and needless to say an ensuing back lash against this savagery is also growing. I am certain there are many Ngunis also outraged by the allowance of such regressive practice.
Contrary to what many believe, animals are thinking, sentient, intelligent creatures and suffer tremendously with cruel treatment, just as humans do. Cruelty against them has been found to harm society as a whole, normalising insensitivity in children who can become numb to the suffering of living beings, and increasing violence towards other humans. Foreigners who experience or come to see this brutality in your country will leave traumatized, disgusted, and deeply saddened, rather than uplifted by Africa’s paradoxical beauty and friendliness.
I urge you to end the violent Ukweshwama ritual and move towards progression to a truly peaceful country, by encouraging respect and appropriate treatment towards animals, as outlined in Animals Protection Act, Act 71 of 1962) section 2(a). Globally ideas concerning animal rights are becoming more popular by the day, and until such time as animal welfare laws are enforced in Africa, it will be necessary to many to boycott your country as both as a tourist and via commerce as well as encourage others to participate in a boycott as well.
