Demande à l'ambassade de votre pays et au gouverneur de Santa Catarina au
Brésil d'interdire la fête annuelle Farra do Boi. Les vaches et le taureaux
sont torturés et tués d'une manière horrible.
De coups de couteau, lancement de pierres, on frappe avec des bâtons et des
objets pointus. Les os sont brisés et les yeux enlevés et après l'agonie on
leur donne de l'eau salée à boire.

I am writing in reference to the cruel festival "Farra do Boi". I
respectfully urge the State of Santa Catarina to take immediate action and
abide by the decision of the Supreme Tribunal Federal to ban the Farra do
The holy day tradition involves the population of each of the little coastal
towns and villages. The day is spent beating to death an ox with knives,
stones, sticks and piercing objects. The animals bones are broken and the
eyes are poked out. Exhausted, tortured and suffering, they "comfort" the
animal by giving him salt water to drink.
This barbaric "holy day" tradition has been posted on the Internet for the
world to see. People in Brazil, as well as my friends and associates, are
astonished by the lack of respect for the law. Your support is needed.
We've learned that right after the last Carnival, people in the city of
Florianopolis have promoted Farra do Boi and none were arrested. The
practice has been banned since 1997 but the Governor Esperidiao Amin does
not take action in order to educate people or stop the torture.
According to Federal law number 9605/98, torturing animals is a crime. It's
outrageous that violent people, such as the seven men who tortured and
killed a horse in 2000, are not in jail.
People throughout the world are waiting and hoping for severe changes in the
State of Santa Catarina.
Thank you for you attention.
