I just signed the petition “Investigator Speaks Out: Tell the Mexican Government to Stop Abusing Animals” and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.
Our goal is to reach 35,000 signatures and we need more support.

I visited government-owned-and-operated slaughterhouses across Mexico and was horrified by what I saw.
Pigs were hooked in their mouths, stabbed in their necks, and then left to thrash around and slowly die in their own blood.
Cows were tied up by their horns and limbs. Rendered defenseless, they were stabbed in the back of the neck, over and over again. Workers twisted the knives, digging deeper into the animals’ flesh, causing excruciating pain.
At one facility, a child was encouraged to watch and then to participate in the bloodbath. With a large blade, he stabbed a pig, but completely missed the animal’s heart. The pig thrashed and struggled in agony before a worker viciously bludgeoned him to death with a metal pipe.
All of this was done by government employees and often in front of government inspectors.
It’s time for stronger laws in Mexico to help prevent this egregious animal abuse.
Please join me and Mercy For Animals in calling on the Federal Government of Mexico to pass legislation making it a crime to slaughter animals while they are still conscious.
This is a common-sense measure that would greatly alleviate the suffering of millions of animals a year in Mexico.
“María del Carmen”
Until this legislation is passed, we encourage people to BOYCOTT MEXICO if they have holiday plans for 2017.
And to close this post with much better things, we present the following for you to enjoy –
Who says an animal will not thank you for helping it ?
Just really sad to see all the others left behind in such terrible conditions.
