Love your pics! So hate the bombs going off!!! the processions are bad, but we've had school kids doing same! Plus seen a few lost scared dogs you never see in centro just petrified!!! Enough already!!!:wtf: :rant:

Yes, the dogs, birds, cats and other furry, plumed and scaly creatures really suffer, to the point of making them ill and even killing them. But like the "responsible authorities" (quienes brillan por su ausencia), the "pilgrims" lighting off the explosives could care less about their fellow creatures. This is all about THEM, and of course our collective deified human "superiority".

Then there are the angelitos, machos and borrachos who taunt and torture dogs and cats with the fireworks they light off and sometimes even throw at them.

Sad and shameful. I find myself simply wishing every festive occasion would hurry up and be over, whether from the explosions or the drunks or the blaring music all night. Not that long ago even downtown Zihuatanejo used to be such a quiet and peaceful place at night. The bottle rockets used to go pfffffffffft-POP. Now they go HSSSSSSSSSSST-KABOOM! My automatic reaction remains to return fire. A pity the church leaders won't say anything to their followers, and of course if the local government would simply apply the law none of this would be a problem, which has been my principle complaint about the current municipal administration since they took office.
