Animal Cruelty in the Name of Art!

In the 2007, the 'artist' Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, he tied him to a rope in an art gallery, starving him to death. For several days, the 'artist' and the visitors of the exhibition have watched emotionless the shameful 'masterpiece' based on the dog's agony, until eventually he died.But this is not all, the prestigious Visual Arts Biennial of the Central American decided that the 'installation' was actually art, so that Guillermo Vargas Habacuc has been invited to repeat his cruel action for the biennial of 2008.

For those who believe in the power of online petitions go to this site:

Supposedly it was a hoax.

Still fucked up if you ask me.

A hoax... if this really disconcerts you, quit making the artist famous. The dog was tied in the gallery for three hours, and fed (though not during the showing.)

Meanwhile, dogs are starving anonymously. Won't someone save -them- with an internet petition?
You need to get over yourself. Maybe continue working on your PHD.
