Angry This is just SICK!

Someone just sent me a petition to stop an artist who used a straving dog as an ART exhibit and let it just die !!!

As usual, I look these things up on www.snopes.com . Well, although Snopes lists this claim as "undetermined" the article from the WSPA shows it to be true!!

This is SO -SO-SO VERY WRONG!! What type of person would exhibit a starving dog as art and let it die?

That is plain sick!! He knew exactly what he was doing!! People were pleading with him to set the dog free and he refused! He died in front the crowds that came to his stupid display. That poor dog, What gets me is the dog's name was Nativity - as in Christmas Nativity.

I am absolutely horrified at that. I won't even open those links.

I had read about this on one of the artist forums I belong too. If you ask me someone should chain the "artist" and let him die of starvation as his next exhibit. I just can't believe how sick and cruel some people can be. If I remember right did this take place in Mexico?

If you ask me we should all hunt this guy up....strip him naked....put a choak collar on him....tie him to a tree with a 6 foot lease....bring large plates of food that we place 8 foot from him...set up our chairs and have a drink while we tell our little Havs to fetch a ball...!!!!

I don't understand people not doing something....like calling the law. How in the world can something like this take place and people knowing about it? I would be setting in jail for attacking the guy. So very sick.

Yes, and then call it "art" ....


I'm sorry but the word "art" is abused so often....just because it's "art" it's " ok" !?

at a loss for words......

Well, after reading about this on Snopes, apparently no one called the law because in Costa Rica there are no animal cruelty laws! So this evil person broke no laws. Unbelievable.

Shocking and sickening. So many people seem to be missing compassion for all living beings.
