This is exactly what -if nothing is done- will happen on November 24 and 25, 2009, in Nepal. The Gadimai Festivalin Bariyarpur, Bara District, is held each five years. The mass sacrifice turns the entire area into a marshy land of blood. Some 70% of the devotees come from Bihar, India. We have formed a coalition with Indian animals rights groups to end this bloody, cruel practice.
Go to http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/stop-gadimai.html to sign a petition addressed to the Ministers of Tourism, Agriculture, Peace and Law and Justice.
For more information about the festival go to http://animalnepal.org/campaigns_wwc.htm A number of religious groups in Nepal are opposing the mass sacrifice.
Palden Dorje or Buddha Boy, a young religious leader, plans to bless the devotees ahead of the event with the aim to stop animal sacrifice: http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-331005
