The Gadhimai festival
The Gadhimai festival seems to be the latest thing to get the animal rights activist's panties in a twist.
Yes, tens of thousands of animals are being sacrificed in this once every five years festival honouring Gadhimai. But so what?
They're all animals that have been raised to be killed to be eaten, the carcases will all be taken home and eaten.
All that's happened is that the animals have all been killed in one place rather than back in hte home villages. And as to the argument that the methods are cruel: well, yes, they tend to be in poor rural areas.
Your point is what?
