Target: Rolando Zapata Bello, Governor of Yucatan
Goal: Thank government officials for putting an end to a violent event in which ducks are strangled.
For years, a small city in Mexico held the Kots Kaal Pato festival, which roughly translates into “strangle the duck.” During this festival, a duck would be tied up to a wooden frame and at the whistle blow, festival-goers would trample over each other to try to be the one to rip off the duck’s head.
The event was truly barbaric and savage. It showed some of the worst aspects of humans. Thankfully, due to numerous online petitions including one at ForceChange, government officials have decided to ban the violent festival. Sign this petition and thank officials for banning this barbaric event. Numerous lives are now spared unnecessary pain and death.
Dear Mr. Bello,
The Kots Kaal Pato festival was an event held every year in the small city of Citilcum where a duck would be tied to a wooden frame and festival-goers would scramble over each other to be the one to rip off the duck’s head. The event showed some of the worst sides of humanity.
Thankfully, after listening to the public, you have decided to ban this cruel festival. Now, numerous ducks have been spared from unimaginable pain and unnecessary death. Thank you for listening and protecting these animals. No animal should be tortured for entertainment.
[Your Name Here]
