    It is people that have no hearts into which all darkness comes into the world.

    Hi @cowisnotaninsult..itsananimal

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Many stories—sometimes conflicting—have been circulating about these events, and it has been difficult to verify the reports that we’ve received. Because the initial exhibit with the dog took place in Nicaragua, which has no cruelty-to-animals laws, Vargas cannot be charged with a crime at this time.

    An experienced caseworker is monitoring this case and PETA will step in if we determine that Vargas plans to abuse another animal. Otherwise, we believe that any additional attention to the case will just give Vargas publicity.

    People often commit cruel acts like this one to gain attention, so it is important not give them the attention they clearly want. For more thoughts on this issue, check out: http://www.PETA.org/b/thepetafiles/archive/2008/04/21/artist-starving-dog.aspx.
