They Should Do It To Him

This may be the most infuriating, disgusting thing I’ve read in years. From a reader:

In 2007, Costa Rican “artist” Guillermo Vargas

Habacuc, took a dog from the street, tied him to a

rope in an art gallery in Honduras, and starved 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. And now 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.

If you’d like more information and to sign a petition

to stop this from happening again:

[Go here and here]

The photos are pretty sickening, even to those of us

in the unwanted animal biz who have to see sick,

starving and dying animals every day.

How anyone could have passed by and not given that

poor dog a bowl of water and some food is beyond sick.

Thank you.

But the Daily Mail makes it sound a bit more convoluted. If it’s a hoax, it’s stupid. If it’s real, the artist deserves a beating.
