Boycott this 'art'

I read this on someone's blog and I am still shaking with anger!!!!

His name is Guillermo Habacuc Vargas. He took a starving dog off the street and tied it up in a gallery as his exhibit. He felt that the dog would have eventually died on the streets so it was okay to let it continue starving. This sickens me so much- I can’t comprehend how so many people stood by and did nothing. They were complicit in this dog’s death. How did anyone not try to help? Apparently the “artist” did not allow anyone to give the dog food or water (how did anyone not do anything ???). He justifies that the dog would have died anyway- except that he could have saved that poor animal and countless others who were there & involved could have saved the dog. I hope he gets what he deserves one day- a slow agonizing death from thirst & starvation as people stand around to watch his death as they mingle, have drinks & make small talk. What this “artist” has done is so reprehensible and I cannot comprehend how this was allowed to happen.
The above was what I read....here is what I have to say What is the matter with people today? Seriously....what happend to the days when someone did something wrong and people didn't let it fly? Why do we now have a legal paths we have to take to stop wrong doing because of the rights of the accussed? Animal cruelty, rape, murder, arson.....Heaven forbid we step on the piece of crap's rights that is doing this heinous stuff. AAAAAaaaahhhhh!!!! If I met this person on the street I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to let him know what I think of this 'art'!!!

That blog gives detailed and very helpful instructions. Also quotes in english from the "artist" himself.

The form is a bit confusing if you dont know spanish.. this site helped me out. :)

Thank you very much! Sounds like the artist needed to do a bit of back peddling after this exhibit!!! So glad to hear they closed the art gallery!!!!
