So I read on another forum about this supposed "artist" named Guillermo Vargas 'Habacuc', who apparently in 2007 tied up a dog in a gallery and starved it to death calling it art while other brainwashed *******s stood around and watched. He has now been invited back to give another "performance". I don't usually jump all over petitions or "get involved", but this really pisses me off...It might only be one signature but it can't hurt.

And here is the link to the petition:

Thanks.

It was initially reported that the dog was left to die with food just beyond its leashes length as patrons passed by in the gallery. Many images have appeared on the Internet showing a thin, emaciated dog tied to a line in a room full of standing people. There are no indications in the photos of where or when or who took them.[2][3] He refuses to say whether the dog survived the show but the director of the Códice Gallery is reported as saying that the animal was fed regularly and was only tied up for 3 hours on one day before it escaped.[4] The Humane Society's investigation revealed that, although public perception that the animal had died was part of the artwork's intended effect, the dog was in fact given food and water and allowed to escape back into the street at the conclusion of the exhibit [5]
