Protest against savage Festivals in New Caledonia

In  New Caledonia  (French: officially: Nouvelle-Calédonie ):

Two  annual horrible traditional  festivals :

1= in PAITA "la Fête du Boeuf " Oct/Nov

2= in BOURAIL " la Foire Agricole ) August

With severe animal abuses in which bull are chased and mutilated ( ALIVE CASTRATION in Paita ) ,  rodeos and massacres.

The purpose of this petition is to protest against this traditional  savagery belonging to a colonial past  and to ask the rodeos and mutilation cancellation definitely.

And to alert the Tourism Office about those events  damaging the country and about those intorelable events  .

Commemorating a cultural history can be admirable, yet sujecting animals to such primitive rituals ( belonging to colonial traditions ) only demonstrates the country as an undereducated society ignoring Animal Rights .

Animals are sentient creatures capable of emotion, though and pain .

When you support the exploitation of them you only  promote indifference establishing that you are unsympathetic to suffering
