February 8, 2010 - DOVE GETS ANOTHER CHANCE AT LIFE

paloma

paloma

anonymous report (translation):

"We bought the freedom of a dove who was captured in the streets of Caracas, Venezuela and was destined to be sold for santeria (witchcraft) sacrifices. If it wasn't already clear to the owners and customers of this pet store, trafficking in animals is wrong, and that if they continue this activity we will initiate a boycott campaign against this dirty business.
Later we released her a large open space.
We know that what we did was not a heroic act of liberation; we only gave a second chance at life to a dove and we hope to have created a little bit of awareness in people who benefit economically from animal slavery, though we ourselves were responsible for this."

Spanish:
"Compramos la libertad de una paloma, destinada a la venta para sacrificios de santeria (brujer�a) capturadas en las calles de Caracas, Venezuela, no si antes dejar claro a los due�os y clientes de esta tienda de mascotas, que traficar con animales es realmente incorrecto, y que si siguen en esta actividad iniciaremos campa�as boicot contra este negocio sucio.
Luego la liberamos en un gran espacio libre.
Sabemos que lo que hicimos no es un acto he�rico de liberaci�n, solo le dimos una segunda oportunidad de vida a una paloma y esperamos haber creado un poco de conciencia en personas que se benefician ec�nomicamente con la esclavitud animal, aunque nosotros mismos fuimos responsables de ello."
