Keep the Izamal fiesta cruelty-free!

Last year, Humane Society International succeeded in transforming Kots Kaal Pato fiesta, a terrible ritual in Izamal (Yucatan), Mexico consisting of stringing up small animals like piñatas and beating them to death or cutting off their heads. An agreement was signed last April with the Municipality to continue to collaborate on providing non-cruel alternatives to celebrate the fiesta.

This April 29th, the new and humane San Bartolo Fiesta is scheduled to take place instead, but a vocal minority in Izamal is adding pressure to reinstate animal cruelty as a cherished “tradition”. We need your help to ensure the cruel festival of Kots Kaal Pato does not return.

Please take a moment to thank Mayor Warnel May Escobar for ending Kots Kaal Pato and continuing his support for its transformation into a cruelty-free fiesta to ensure that no animals are harmed.

For the second consecutive year, a cruelty-free festival is taking the place of the Kots Kaal Pato - an annual Yucatan ritual of stringing up small animals like piñatas and beating them to death or cutting off their heads. Last April, Humane Society International/Mexico, along with local Catholic Church authorities and local animal protection organizations AFAD and Movimiento Consciencia signed an agreement with Izamal Mayor Warnel May Escobar to hold a cruelty-free fiesta as an alternative to Kots Kaal Pato.

With the cancelation of the cruel component of the fiesta, which would have taken place today, local authorities and HSI marked the celebration of Saint Bartolo with cruelty-free activities, including traditional sports and contests. A number of celebrities joined the festivity: Yucatan TV comedian Tina Tuyub offered a stand-up show and actress Sachi Tamashiro sent a video message to express her congratulations.

Felipe Marquez, HSI/Mexico animal protection expert, said: "Cruel festivities in which different kinds of animals are abused take place on a regular basis across Mexico. Consolidating the humane transformation of the Izamal fiesta is vital to prove that traditions can evolve as societies’ values become more considerate and compassionate.”

Thank Izamal officials for keeping the San Bartolo festival cruelty free.

Close to 74,000 people signed an online petition by Humane Society International/Mexico to support the Izamal mayor in the transformation of the Yucatan fiesta into a humane celebration. Earlier this year, HSI launched a humane education program in Izamal, providing lectures and education materials for nearly 500 students, spanning from kindergarten to junior high-school levels.
