I'm so glad to hear it! I can't believe a town that this was a good thing for the people to celebrate every year. Makes me really wonder about people. But, I'm glad we were able to save so many lives and stop it again! Hopefully we can end it permanently.

it has instead been replaced with dropping live meat eaters from a plane in an effort to encourage more of the town's citizens to go veggie
