The Dashain Festival is one of the most popular religious festivals in Nepal. But for tens to hundreds of thousands of innocent animals, it means cold-hearted bloodshed.

On the 8th day of the 10-day festival, devotees line the streets to sacrifice and behead animals. It is believed that by appeasing the ‘blood thirsty’ goddess, Durja, that fertility will be rewarded to them in return.

And this happens every single year. Now the animal slaughter bloodbath is set to begin again in just a few days.

URGENT: The slaughter begins October 24th. We don't have much time left.

Tell Nepal's Minister of Home Affairs:

We must end animal sacrifice altogether. Replace it with more compassionate offerings.
