STOP THIS CRUELTY NOW!
Words can not decribe how angry and ashamed I am to have witnessed this horrible bloodbath in Nepal. There are no excuses and no religeous grounds for this at all no matter how you look at it! Barbaric and cruel is all this is. If this happened in our country people would go to jail! We must STOP this and teach these people that it is wrong and not at all nessecary in the 21st century. Nepal.....mmmm no holidays for me here that's for sure!

Dear Honourable Prime Minister

Animals Asia is deeply shocked and horrified to see the images of immense cruelty and suffering inflicted upon many thousands of animals following the Gadhimai festival in Bara, Nepal on the 24-25 November 2009. Despite our letters appealing for this slaughter to be prevented, the Nepalese government have chosen to ignore these pleas and justify this mass cruelty towards innocent animals by allowing this slaughter to take place.

This unregulated slaughter is illegal under Nepalese laws and has caused immense suffering for the hundreds of thousands buffalo, pigs, chickens, rats, goats, and pigeons that have been slaughtered. It has also brought shame upon your country and your people.

As an international animal protection group that have always welcomed and supported the animal welfare progress in Nepal, particularly your recent ban on the export of macaques for research, we are horrified by this cruelty.

The images of animal cruelty witnessed at the festival have been distributed worldwide and have seriously damaged the image of Nepal as a tourist destination for international visitors.

Traditions is no justification for this barbaric act, people both within Nepal and internationally are appalled at this atrocity and we urge you to work in conjunction with the festival organizers to prevent this from happening again.

Animals Asia urge the Nepalese government to enforce stronger animal protection laws to protect animals from this barbaric suffering and respectfully ask that the government embrace non-violent alternatives and end the slaughter of animals at future religious festivals.

Sincerely,
Karen Edney

Utter Condemnation of this Greedy Needless Horrendous Act
I have just seen pictures of this heinous crime on the AnimalsAsia site. Buffalo that has been transported there , days on the trucks with no water or food , standing there with heads down and a so called human standing over it with a massive sword ready to chop its head off!
The animals watching others being killed in such a way , waiting for their turn , including the killing of mother animals in front of their offspring.
Manoj Gautam said: The animals were not provided with any water and food in the days before the sacrifice. Many young animals had in fact already died from stress, exhaustion and dehydration before the killings started. Their bodies were left among the live animals.

Everyone could kill anything, with whatever knife or sword. Many animals died an unbearable slow and violent death because the butcher was inexperienced and the knives were not sharpened properly. Thousands of buffalo were standing in an enclosure when butchers holding swords started hacking randomly at the animals. Some heads could be severed in one cut; in other cases, it took the butchers a long time to kill the buffalo.

No one was holding the animals – many tried to escape. Baby buffaloes were bleating and searching for their mothers. Soon they were walking around in a pool of blood. They were hunted down by the butchers. Needless to say, not a single animal survived the bloodbath.

After witnessing the suffering inflicted on these gentle, loyal animals, I feel deeply upset and ashamed of my country.

Please , please stop this disgusting act.

Stop this heinous crime please.
There is nothing "Honorary" about your government to be allowing such ungodly acts to take place in your country.

Stop this heinous crime please.
I am writing to you in horror and disgust and am calling for an end to the mass animal sacrifices at the Gadhimai Festival in Bara district, about 160 kilometres (100 miles) south of Kathmandu.

Sixteen thousand buffalo and thousands of other animals were slaughtered by devotees on 24 and 25 November, 2009, during the five-yearly festival that honours the Hindu goddess of power, Gadhimai. A further 50,000 goats were killed by individual devotees, as were an unknown number of other animals, such as sheep, pigs, rats, pigeons and chicken.

Despite campaigning by Nepalese, Indian and international animal-welfare organisations, including Animals Asia, the organisers of the festival and the Nepalese government allowed the slaughter to take place. Please see here for Animal Welfare Network Nepal's firsthand account of the bloodbath.

This is an abhorrent act contrary to any humane or religious principal and must be stopped forthwith.

Yours
Nicki Stewart
