Stop the sacrifice of goats at the Khokana Festivals in Nepal
This petition had 62,950 supporters
The Khokana Festival in Nepal is held annually in August. During the festival a young female goat is thrown into a pond where a group of young men attack, bite and tear the goat apart while it is still alive. The man who is judged to have eventually killed the goat is named a "hero" and leads a dance procession which follows. Such a cruel and vicious act inflicted on an animal has no place in a civilised society and should be banned immediately.
