This is Incredible: Hindus slaughter 5,000 buffalo to bring worshippers goodluck (Graphic Pics)

More than 250,000 animals are being lined up
for slaughter as Nepal embarks on a two-day
religious festival where buffalo, birds and goats
are sacrificed to appease a Hindu goddess.

According to dailymail, Millions of Hindus flock
to the ceremony, which is held every five years
at the temple of Gadhimai, the goddess of
power, in Bariyarpur, Nepal, near the Indian
border.

The last time the festival was held, in 2009,
more than 250,000 animals were killed,
according to animal rights organisation PETA,
who is campaigning to put a stop to the
practice.

The festival is ‘kicked off’ with the ritual
slaughter of five thousand buffalo in a field
near the temple, after which two days of ritual
animal slaughter takes place.
