Cruel Tradition Finally Ended!

Today marks a fantastic day for animal rights! The Gadhimai Animal-Slaughter Festival in Nepal has finally decided to stop all animal sacrifices and end such a horrific tradition. This is a great result not only for the festival, but it also shows how people are starting to see that just because something is a tradition that has taken place for years, doesn’t make it right. This particular tradition is 300 years old and follows persistent campaigning from the inspiring animal charities Animal Welfare Network Nepal and Humane Society International/India. The next festival will take place in 2019, which the temple have said will be “a momentous celebration of life”. Times are definitely changing…
