  • Hindu sacrifice of 250,000 animals begins
    Olivia Lang in Bariyapur
    www.guardian.co.uk
    Tuesday 24 November 2009 13.11 GMT


    The world's biggest animal sacrifice began in Nepal today with the killing of the first of more than 250,000 animals as part of a Hindu festival in the village of Bariyapur, near the border with India.

    The event, which happens every five years, began with the decapitation of thousands of buffalo, killed in honour of Gadhimai, a Hindu goddess of power.

    With up to a million worshippers on the roads near the festival grounds, this year's fair seems more popular than ever, despite vocal protests from animals rights groups who have called for it to be banned. "It is the traditional way, " explained 45-year old Manoj Shah, a Nepali driver who has been attending the event since he was six, "If we want anything, and we come here with an offering to the goddess, within five years all our dreams will be fulfilled." .

    Crowds thronged the roads and camped out in the open, wrapped in blankets against the cool mist. The festivities included a ferris wheel, fortune-telling robots and stalls broadcasting music and offering tea and sugary snacks.

    As dawn broke, the fair officially opened with the sacrifice of two rats, two pigeons, a pig, a lamb and a rooster in the main temple, to cheers of "Long live Gadhimai" from spectators pushing against each other for a better view.

    In the main event, 250 appointed residents with traditional kukri knives began their task of decapitating more than 10,000 buffalo in a dusty enclosure guarded by high walls and armed police.

    Frightened calves galloped around in vain as the men, wearing red bandanas and armbands, pursued them and chopped off their heads. Banned from entering the animal pen, hundreds of visitors scrambled up the three-metre walls to catch a glimpse of the carnage.

    The dead beasts will be sold to companies who will profit from the sale of the meat, bones and hide. Organisers will funnel the proceeds into development of the area, including the temple upkeep.

    On the eve of the event, protesters made a final plea to organisers by cracking open coconuts in a nearby temple as a symbolic sacrifice. "It is cruel and inhumane. We've always been a superstitious country, but I don't think sacrifice has to be part of the Hindu religion," said the protest organiser, Pramada Shah.

    The campaign has the support of the French actor Brigitte Bardot, who has petitioned the Nepalese prime minister, Madhav Kumar Nepal, about the issue. But the government, which donated £36,500 to the event, has shown no sign of discontinuing the centuries-old tradition. An attempt by the previous government to cut the budget for animal sacrifice provoked street protests.

    Chandan Dev Chaudhary, a Hindu priest, said he was pleased with the festival's high turnout and insisted tradition had to be kept. "The goddess needs blood," he said. "Then that person can make his wishes come true."

  • tradition has to be respected, but does it have to be gory?  does it need to torture animals to death?

    some traditions die because as civilization develops man realizes that there are just some practices that belong to an earlier age when man was less enlightened.  an example is cannibalism.  another is the hindu practice of sati (or suttee), the widow burning of old, when the wife was "supposed to cast away any sins the husband had committed, making him able to have a happy afterlife. This was voluntary for the widow, but they were put under much pressure to do it and were looked upon as a bad person if they didn’t go through with it." (wiki)

    sadly, nepal still practiced sati well into the early 20th century while india had theirs officially eliminated in the 1800s.  who knows, this gory practice of animal cruelty will die out too, sooner than later.

  • In theory and practice

    There are many reasons why individuals abuse animals.  Animal cruelty covers a wide range of actions (or lack of action).  Learning about animal abuse has revealed patterns of behavior employed by abusers.

    Animal cruelty is often broken down into two main categories: active and passive, also referred to as commission and omission, respectively.

    Passive cruelty is typified by cases of neglect, in which the cruelty is a lack of action rather than the action itself.  Examples of neglect are starvation, dehydration, parasite infestations, allowing a collar to grow into an animal’s skin, inadequate shelter in extreme weather conditions, and failure to seek veterinary care when necessary.

  • In many cases of neglect in which an investigator believes that the cruelty occurred out of ignorance, the investigator may attempt to educate the pet owner, then revisit the situation.  In more severe cases, exigent circumstances may require that the animal be removed for veterinary care.

    Active cruelty implies malicious intent, as when a person has deliberately and intentionally caused harm to an animal, and is sometimes referred to as NAI (Non-Accidental Injury).  Acts of intentional animal cruelty may be indicators of serious psychological problems.  There is an intrinsic link between battered pets and battered women and children.  The likelihood that women's shelter personnel will encounter women and children who have been threatened by batterers using animal abuse as a weapon is high.  This is because more families in America have pets than have children.  Secondly, the majority of pet owners are themselves parents with children. 

    Thirdly, 64.1% of households with children under age 6, and 74.8% of households with children over age 6, also have pets. 

    Lastly, as many as 71% of pet-owning women seeking shelter at safe houses have reported that their partner had threatened and/or actually hurt or killed one or more of their pets; 32% of these women reported that one or more of their children had also hurt or killed pets.

    Battered women report that they are prevented from leaving their abusers because they fear what will happen to the animals in their absence.  Animal abuse sometimes is used as a form of intimidation in domestic disputes.
