The death of Nepal's killing fields: Centuries old festival where Hindus decapitate hundreds



The death of Nepal's killing fields: Centuries-old festival where Hindus decapitate hundreds of thousands of animals to 'appease goddess' is banned
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
The Gadhimai festival was world's largest animal sacrifice event and took place every five years in southern Nepal
Over 500,000 buffalo, goats and chickens were decapitated in Nepalese temple in 2009, and around 250,000 in 2014
Around five million, of whom 80 per cent are Indian, would travel to watch animals being killed in two-day festival
Religious leaders including the chairman of the Gadhimai Temple Trust have officially cancelled 265-year-old event
These truly distressing scenes of animals being slaughtered in their thousands last year will never take place again.
Nepal's religious leaders have finally called an end to the bloody, centuries-old tradition in which Hindus slaughter hundreds of thousands of animals to appease a goddess.
