Dear Friends,

Once again we are requesting the international support to stop this slaughter. It is despicable the way in which Mayor Juan Carlos Font in the city of Trenque Lauquen in Argentina deals with pet overpopulation. If you click on the URL below, you'll see how animals are thrown into the city dump like trash, you'll be able to see how a still alive and pregnant doggie was going to be buried if it hadn't been for the animal advocates� intervention.

Mayor Juan Carlos Font, does not care and has threatened Argentinian animal activist associations for making this public.

Mayor Juan Carlos Font as well as the veterinarian corporation refuse to start a massive neutering program to avoid dogs� overpopulation, they want to go on killing animals. Please send protest e-mails to the addresses stated below. There is a sample letter below, do not send the English version, but do send the Spanish version please. DO NOT FEEL COMPASSION AND BE DIRECT, THEY HATE BEING EXPOSED TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, WE HAVE TRIED BEING NICE AND IT DID NOT WORK.

PLEASE CROSSPOST, WE NEED HUNDRED OF E-MAILS

THANK YOU ON BEHALF OF THESE POOR ANIMALS.

AMPLE LETTER (ENGLISH VERSION)

Mr Mayor of Trenque Lauquen

Juan Carlos Font

We have received the appalling images of the treatment that your town is giving to homeless dogs shown at : http://www.youtube. com/watch? v=_4dHBqkymus

This event shows an absolute lack of respect towards society in general and the international community as well, we are shocked and horrified at the cruelty and pain inflected on defenceless and sentient beings as non-human animals are.

We are aware that "your" method to control pet overpopulation is absolutely contradictory with what it is mandated in your National Law # 14346 for the Protection of Animals and it is also opposed to the World Health Organization Standards that state the only highly recommended method to control pet overpopulation is massive spay/neuter programs sustained in time.

Your actions, Mayor Font, clearly show the ineptitude of your administration to solve this problem in an ethic and efficient way. It also shows the unsafe conditions for potential tourists by not even enforcing your own laws.

To sum up, Mr Font, we urge you to implement a serious pet overpopulation control program which respects life and the right to live it above all. Otherwise we will choose other destinations for our holidays, and encourage others to do likewise.

We are forwarding this message to all our contacts and to Argentine embassies all over the world.

SAMPLE LETTER (SPANISH VERSION)

Sr. Intendente de Trenque Lauquen

Dn. Juan Carlos Font

Han llegado a nosotros las devastadoras imágenes del tramiento que su comuna da a los perros sin hogar: http://www.youtube. com/watch? v=_4dHBqkymus

Este sistema muestra una total falta de respeto hacia la sociedad de su pais y hacia la comunidad internacional toda, que se ve sacudida con las imagenes de tales aberrantes y crueles actos hacia seres indenfensos y sintientes como son los animales no humanos.

Estamos al tanto que este método de control poblacional de mascotas está reñido con vuestra Ley Nacional 14.346 de Protección Animal además de ser contrapuesto con las recomendaciones de la Organización Mundial de la Salud que especifíca que el único método para paliar esto son las castraciones masivas y sostenidas en el tiempo.

Su accionar, Indentente Font, muestra a las claras la ineptitud de su administració n para resolver de manera eficiente y etico un problema de vieja data. También pone de manifiesto la inseguridad para los potenciales turistas ya que desde su pais se propaga una imagen de falta de respeto hacia las leyes.

Por lo expuesto le exigimos señor Font que ponga en marcha un programa serio de control poblacional donde prime la vida y el derecho a la misma caso contrario elegiremos otros destinos para vacacionar y recomendaremos a nuestros contactos que hagan lo mismo.

PD: Estamos enviando copia de la presente a vuestras autoridades nacionales, embajadas argentinas y los medios.
