These photo's are taken of a 'cow slaughtering' ceremony. These don't happen very often, so we were 'fortunate' to come at this time, to see all the dances, and ancestral speeches been made. I wasn't to keen on the end result, mind you! I thought the way in which the cows were killed was cruel, but after watching a nature program on TV later, I realised that if these animals were in the wild, they would probably suffer a much slower & more painful death. Life sometimes is harsh here - for humans and animals. To read more about the ceremony and its background, click HERE.
