Mat: It wouldnt bring down the whole economy, but to threaten the biggest source of income should help bring some changes. I rely on tourism as well, but I also cant go on pretending like everything is ok. Cancun and Mexico as a whole is worthless when it comes to the protection of animals - we as foreigners have a great chance to shed some light on this. I will def send some info to the swedish newspapers as I feel that people have the right to know. At least that gives people a choice This is not only about this specific case - this is something I have witnessed since arriving some 2 years ago... As a person with normal values, it hurts me a lot to see that most people honestly dont give a s*it. Ban petshops from selling puppies, kittens etc. - Impulse buys are the majority of the cases in the various shelters. Make breeders spay the puppies they sell. Make it a law. Maybe most important of all: Educate the locals. On this point I dont blame them, since Cancun is approx 35 years old and went from being a small Mayan village to this tourism haven of North America. Boycott will never be 100% effective since many tourists dont give a crap what happens outside of the Hotel Zone. But to raise issues and bring about some negative publicity would, hopefully, make the people in charge become a bit more careful regarding their source of income.
