Brutal Slaughtering of Animal in Achham Nepal .

Hundreds of young men chasing, biting and hacking 40 buffaloes to death. That was the scene at a festival held in Gajra VDC at Achham district last Thursday. AWNN says the mass chasing and killings of these gentle working animals is gruesome and ‘has nothing to do with culture or religion’.





Each year after Haribodhani Ekadasi, during full moon, Gajra VDC celebrates Dauthegada’s Dashain, a festival marked by large numbers of animal sacrifice.


“On Thursday fourty buffaloes and two hundred goats have been slaughtered,” said coordinator committee. The village has only 340 households which means the animal killings require a high investments from the villagers. According to committee this year the number of slaughtered buffaloes was reduced from last year, when over 50 buffaloes were hunted down.






The villagers believe the more often ‘devotees’ bite and hack at the buffaloes, the more satisfied Barbadevi Mai Goddess will be. This is the biggest animal sacrifice event in the district, visited by thousands of people from Achham and neighbouring districts.
