It is a win/win for all, educating children is the way to go! Thank goodness the needless killing of innocent animals has been stopped. ;)

Fantastic News! I hope Nepal follows next in banning the live sacrifice of so many animals every year and the horrific torture of goats at the Khokana Festival! Thanks to Jilla Pashubali Pratirodha Mancha, and the animal welfare organization, (APOWA) in stopping this terrible loss of life and traumatizing so many children! Bless them forever and thank you Simone for posting this great news!

Noted! Fantastic news. I hope that Nepal follows suit in getting rid of its barbaric animal sacrifices and the torture of goats at the Khokana Festival! May the lives of these animals be spared too!

Terrific news. There was no reason to keep this tradition going. It was sending the wrong message to the children.
