This is one of the most disturbing examples of human apathy I’ve ever seen…words are simply not sufficient to express my outrage.
From: ALF SUPPORT U.S.ASignatures are sky rocketing!! People are extremely pissed off about this. Feel free to repost on your website, myspace etc!! Please keep it goin & sign the petition here.It is in Spanish but here is the translation.
Originally From:Maria DainesDear all, just received this and you bet I’ll be signing the petition -From Vesna Jones -Dear friends, this is very cruel and sad. An “artist” from Costa Rica, named Guillermo Habacuc Vargas, put a starved dog as a work of art, the poor dog died there, he did not want anyone give him food or water. This monster asked some children to chase the dog and he paid them for their dirty work to give him the dog.
In that event, (in which the dog died) he was chosen to represent his country in the “Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008″, the petition site is to sign to boycott him , so he won’t can participate in the event:
EXHIBITION IS TAKING PLACE AT

Sample Letter to Send the GalleryI am writing regarding the horrifying actions of Guillermo Habacuc Vargas,who paid local children to catch a dog on the street and then confined, starved and publicly displayed the dog as an “art” exhibit until the innocent animal died of starvation.
I along with many people world wide am outraged that Guillermo habacuc Vargas has been selected to represent Costa Rica in “Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008″,This man is by no definition of the word an artist he is a criminally insane sadist and enjoys inflicting prolonged suffering upon his innocent victims.he is a danger to all of society as it is well dodirty wordented that those with the capacity to intentionally cause harm to an animal have the same capacity to harm humans.
To state that this animal would have died eventually of natural causes is unjustifiable and beyond logical,rational thinking.
To allow Guillermo habacuc Vargas to represent Costa Rica in Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008 will in no way benefit Costa Rica,the world is watching and the actions of this so called artist has brought much negative dirty wordumptions as to the humanity of the people of Costa Rica and the fact that the many witnesses of this animals suffering did nothing and that the organizers of this event allowed this rather than taking action to see that Guillermo Vargas be criminally charged with animal abuse is sending the world a message that Costa Rica consists of a cruel,uncivilized society that has no regard for life but enjoys viewing and contributing to the loss of life.
Each and every person who knew of and witnessed the suffering of this innocent dog is equally as guilty of causing it’s uncalled for death.And to let this crime go unpunished and instead be awarded by Guillermo Vargas representing Costa Rica in Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008 is unacceptable and shameful not only to Costa Rica but to all participants of this event.
I urge you,do not condone the heinous actions of Guillermo Vargas by allowing him to participation in Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008.
He should be jailed and prosecuted to the fullest extent of law for this animals death,not representing Costa Rica as an artist for he is not an artist and to refer to him as such is an insult to all true artists.
