Is Starving A Dog Art?

In 2007 the 'artist' Guillermo Vargas Habacuc took a dog from the street, tied him to a rope in an art gallery, and starved him to death. For several days, the 'artist' and the visitors of the exhibition watched emotionless the shameful 'masterpiece' based on the dog's agony, until eventually he died.

 
Does it look like art to you?

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.

Let's stop him!

Sign a petition to stop him from doing it again. Please do it. It's free of charge, there is no need to register, and it will only take one minute to save the life of an innocent creature.

This story may sound too horribly cruel to be real ... and it may be. A quick look at www.snopes.com (an urban myth and web rumor site) lists this story as unresolved. They don't know if it's true or not. We'd rather be safe than sorry and don't consider signing this petition a waste of time.
