Animals are disappearing in Argentina
16 Nov 2004
The disappearance of stray animals in ROSARIO, ARGENTINA
ANIMAL ACTIVIST GROUPS IN ARGENTINA PREPARE TO BOYCOTT THE 3RD, INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF THE SPANISH LANGUAGE. IT IS BELIEVED THAT CITY OFFICIALS ARE ROUNDING UP ALL OF THE STRAYS IN ROSARIO, AND ELIMINATING THEM...HUNDREDS OF DOGS HAVE
DISAPPEARED, AND ESPECIALLY ONE DOG, KNOW AS, BERNARDO.

He was an icon of the city - everybody loved him and he has disappeared as well as many others (150 up to now). Benardo was taken away from the main walking street and appeared wandering miles away on the highway to Buenos Aires (where he could have never been able to go by himself because he didn't know how to get there). Taken back to his home in Rosario, he has vanished for good now. Animal Advocates from Rosario have started a campaign and they have put up the 4th white tent in one of the main squares in the city to collect signatures, but the local government is harassing their boycott by sending police officers and official lorries, in an effort to remove all demonstrators.

Dear Animal Lovers,

Please help us by sending letters of protest.

Letters of protest can be sent to the following email addresses:
