Sacrificed buffalos lie on the ground of an enclosed compound during the sacrificial ceremony of the "Gadhimai Mela" festival held in BariyapurBy Ross Adkin KATHMANDU (Reuters) – A temple in southern Nepal known for the mass slaughter of animals at a festival there every five years has indefinitely banned animal sacrifice, India's Humane Society International said on Tuesday.
