On the 2nd of February 2012 in Brestnik, Bulgaria more than 20 roosters were beheaded publicly on the village square, while dozens of people, including the Mayor Georgi Kozov himself, watched the horrifying show in sheer ecstasy. After the massacre all spectators rushed to collect the victim's blood, then painted their faces in blood and danced in the open, while drinking themselves into a stupor. This is the idea of fun in Bulgaria. The so called Day of masculinity and manhood or "petljovden" is a satanic pagan ritual, performed annually across Bulgarian towns and villages by drunken, moronic psychopaths. Even underage boys are frequently forced to participate and slaughter birds on the thresholds of their houses. Despite the accession of Bulgaria to the European Union and the Council of Europe, despite the provisions of the Animal Welfare Act and the Penal Code, public animal sacrifices are widely tolerated by the police and actively promoted by mayors, politicians and governmental institutions. This sick, barbaric public display of savagery is immoral, illegal and unacceptable and should be stopped.

I, the undersigned am sick, disgusted and outraged by the frequent public displays of violence toward animals and especially by satanic pagan rituals, like "petljovden" involving animal beheading in Bulgaria. There is nothing masculine or manly in such disgusting outbursts of savagery in public. It is intolerable in the 21st century torturing and killing innocent animals for amusement to be actively promoted and widely advertised as festivity. It is intolerable such barbaric practices to be legal, common and widespread in a country member of the EU, pretending to be civilized. I insist that the Bulgarian authorities must do whatever it takes to effectively prosecute and bring to justice all responsible for that satanic display of violence and torture in public. I insist that you exercise all the powers you have to enforce the Law in Bulgaria and set an example.
I shall not rest until the Bulgarian authorities show clear will and determination in dealing with crimes like that. I shall boycott Bulgarian goods and services, Bulgarian airlines and tourist destinations. Moreover I shall tell everyone I know how I feel. I shall write to my MP, to the European Commission, the nearest travel agent, Chamber of Commerce and newspaper, expressing my anger and frustration. I shall voice my concern and demand radical change in the Bulgarian government's attitude toward animals.
