Stop Massive Animal Sacrifice


Target: Nepal Chief Commissioner, Lokman Singh Karki

Goal: Stop the mass killing of animals during a traditional Nepalese festival

In the biggest animals sacrifice in the world, over half a million animals will be sacrificed at the Gadhimai Temple in Nepal. Devotees will attend a 30-day festival at the temple and kill innocent animals with the belief that this will satisfy their gods and bring them wealth and good fortune. Animal rights activists are horrified by the news and have formed together to stop the event from happening.

Nepalese animal rights advocates gathered together at the temple in Katmandu, Nepal to protest the mass killing of animals during the Nepalese festival. This festival occurs every five years and will start again in November 2014. They hope that the protests will send a message to religious groups that they do not need to kill animals in order to carry out their religious events. Activists from the Animal Welfare Network Nepal along with 50 other people gathered at the temple and repeated slogans against the animal killings.

This protest sparked worldwide support in countries such as India and England from various organizations such as PETA and Compassion in World Farming. All are sending the message that the festival should be discontinued once and for all. In order to do so, the Nepalese government must stop funding this cruel and inhumane festival.

Please sign this petition to demand the Nepalese government terminate this festival and end the horrible suffering that it entails.


Dear Chief Commissioner Karki,

Thousands of people will gather together at the Gadhimai Temple to attend a month-long festival to sacrifice animals to their gods. This sacrifice entails that horrendous suffering be inflicted on animals and we demand that you put an end to it.

When you fund such a cruel event, you are telling the world that you condone the brutal killing of over 500,000 innocent animals. We believe that this festival can still take place without animal sacrifices. Protest against this festival has generated an abundance of support from all over the world. An international coalition of animal rights activists and organizations have called upon you to end this festival’s horrific animal sacrifices.

We urge you to stop funding this event in order to end the festival’s brutal animal sacrifices.

  1. Stop animals cruelty

  2. Stan Benton says:

    This is really sick. Where on Earth did religions get the idea of “sacrificing” innocent animals, supposedly to impress their “God”? How stupid is that?


    • Aura Altman says:

      And to think in have supported the people of Nepal against their persecution.
      Not anymore! This needless animal suffering needs to stop!!!

  4. Any god that requires sacrifice of innocent life, is not a god but a belief system.

  5. Myrna Burdick says:

    Chiara’s (comment above) is right on, the animals are just dying after being maliciously killed by superstitious people
    who want to believe that this act will bring them something besides blood on their hands.
    What kind of gods demand this blood letting? What kind of gods would condone slaughter of the innocent to appease the
    selfish desires of people. When will religions stop endorsing killing as an answer to righteousness.

  6. Quelle carnage au nom d’une religion ou de coutumes ancestrales. Stop à tant de cruauté. Pourquoi faire souffrir ces animaux que l’on devrait respectés ?

  7. Despina M. Andrelus says:

    Abuse is the ultimate betrayal towards any living soul and absolutely heartbreaking all the way around. You simply can not do such a horrific thing without it killing the best in you. Period. If you find people happily willing to hurt an animal in any way, they are actually finding a venue to act out their deepest, most inner evil fantasies of twisted sickness. There’s nothing more revolting than that. Aside from this, it has been proven over and over again that people who have horrid intents with animals, get bored with them soon enough, ultimately leading them to bigger prey, moving up to people, in order to re-ignite and enhance the excitement that the torturing of animals used to provide. It’s simply never enough. And do not forget, these horrendous monsters also end up raising their children in “the game”, breeding evil, little sickos to continue on “the trade”… no doubt causing abuse in every level of their lives, as well. It’s just a revolting cycle that will never end until someone gets into it and breaks the heart-wrenching pattern. So, even if an animal is not of some peoples utmost concern, then note that it will not stop there. It is just a start. And it is just a matter of time.

  8. Despina M. Andrelus says:

    Torture is inexcusable. Period. Nobody, and I mean nobody, needs to torture an animal. That, in and of itself, shows the person’s true character – or lack of. **TORTURE IS NOT CULTURE!!**

  10. EVIL!

  11. Utterly horrific!! Unbelievable that they are allowed to inflict such pain and suffering on innocent creatures. The wiring in their brains is non existent!
