Nepal's Killing Fields

Post by Kitkat on Sat 29 Nov 2014, 00:52

FIVE THOUSAND buffalo lie slaughtered at the beginning of Hindu ceremony which sees up to 300,000 animals killed to bring worshippers good luck

    

  • Hundreds of thousands of animals set to be slaughtered during two-day religious festival in Nepal
       
  • The Hindu festival is held every five years in honour of Gadhimai, the goddess of power
       
  • Festivities kicked off on Friday morning with the mass-slaughter of 5,000-6,000 buffalo in a field
       
  • The last time the festival was held, in 2009, more than 250,000 animals were killed, according to PETA

That is stomach churning.   You would think some authority would get involved to put a stop to that vile custom.  Because it comes under the name of religion it's allowed to continue.  angry
