Festivals are a time to come together and celebrate life. But sadly, there are some festivals that include barbaric slaughter of animals. One such event which encourages the brutal act of inflicting pain on innocent animals is the ”Dey Pukhu Jatra’ festival ….Where a baby goat is thrown inside a pond and the sacrificed prize is fought between contestants…. held every year in the Khokana village of Nepal.
The festival includes people throwing, strangling, biting, and thrashing a young female goat into a pond and until it dies.
The 900-year-old festival is held every year in August, in the village of Khokana, one of the oldest villages in the Kathmandu Valley in central Nepal.
