Nepal’s Gadhimai Festival- A Blood-bath with 2,50,000 Animals

More than 20,000 buffaloes were sacrificed on the first day.
It is estimated that 2,50,000 animals were killed during the Gadhimai festival.
Six people died after drinking adulterated “hooch” in 2009.
The festival has prompted numerous protests by animal rights activists. In 2009 activists made several attempts to stop the ritual, including Brigitte Bardot and Maneka Gandhi, who wrote to the Nepalese government asking them to stop the killings.
