Outrage Sparked By Photo Of Monkey Chained To Raging Bull

monkey chained to bullAustralian animal rights groups have expressed outrage over a photograph of a helpless monkey chained to the back of a raging bull.

RSPCA Australia's chief scientist, Dr Bidda Jones, said the image, which was taken at a festival in Nicaragua, was totally unacceptable.

"If this occurred on our soil, the RSPCA would have no hesitation in prosecuting those responsible," Dr Jones said.

"And we suggest that anyone who sees the photograph should write to the Nicaraguan Government, as well as the World Society for the Protection of Animals, to indicate their concern and outrage."
