Petition at:       



To the president of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto. Mr. President, you can stop this. For the sake of Mexico you need to stop the “Torneo de Lazo” in Yucatan. To witness this level of violence promotes more violence. Your country is already punished by an ever increasing wave of violence. The people of Mexico are suffering this violence every day. Tourism in Mexico is suffering the effects of this violence by the decreasing numbers of tourist visiting Mexico because of it. Torneo de Lazo only adds to a tarnished image that you as president must improve. Besides repairing Mexico’s image this is the decent and humane thing to do. We expect you to do the right thing. The murder and torture of innocent animals should not be entertainment for your people. This is neither culture nor tradition, this is public, shameful sadism. The people who organize and participate in “Torneo de Lazo” must be sanctioned severely. This spectacle is horrible and cruel. Please stop it now.

Why this is important to me

The pain and suffering inflicted on the horses is immense. The fact that this is a “public event” witnessed by all, including children is very harmful to all. THIS EVENT TEACHES THAT VIOLENCE AND CRUELTY IS FUN.

They call it a feast. In the state of Yucatan, Mexico there is a “rodeo” type event called “Torneo de Lazo” where bulls ram horses and eviscerate them. THIS CAUSES A VERY HIGH LEVEL OF PAIN TO THE HORSES. These horses usually collapse and while still alive continue to get trampled by bulls and other horses during the length of this violent and cruel event where horsemen try to lasso the running, charging bulls (the bulls are specifically bred and trained to ram horses).

Although it is against the law, this is only in name. Mexico’s federal government as well as the local authorities do nothing to stop this. This event takes place state wide all year round.

Please demand the Mexican government to put and end to this barbaric event.

  1. I think this is unfair as the horses would say “I did nothing to you so why did you do something mean to me?”

  2. This is not ok AT ALL. This is literally animal abuse in every single way possible. Somebody should be sued or put in jail. The police that aren’t doing anything about this should lose their jobs, and more competent people should be brought in because they obviously can’t seem to handle it. I own horses myself, and I know that they are aware of things happening around them. They can be scared and it’s all the worse when they are purposely harmed for people’s entertainment. Whoever actually enjoys watching something as horrible as that is a sadistic, horrible person.
