I noticed on the news that E-bay was auctioning off guinee pig armour. The current bid was over $24,000. Peruvians have a hard time understanding why someone would go to such lengths to protect their food (as they eat guinee pigs here in Peru). I've tried explaining how some treat them as Mascots and spoil their pets.
Others have said that guinee pigs are preparing for battle because
they have heard how they are mis-treated in Peru.
