August 11, 2011 – AN campaigns to stop Khokana goat cruelty

Each year in Khokana a cruel ritual takes place. A live goat is thrown into a pond and bitten to death by a group of youngsters. The person who kills the goat with his teeth is considered a ‘hero’ and leads the procession.
Animal Nepal since two years organizes camps in the weeks before the sacrifice takes place, to raise awareness and to convince the community to stop the cruel practice. This year during a health camp for pets and strays, our team vaccinated and treated 30 dogs. Although the camps are highly appreciated, sadly the ritual was not stopped this year.
