Nepalese youth watch men attempting to catch a sacrificial animal in a pond in an ancient annual Hindu festival in Kathmandu. In the ritual, a sacrificial animal is thrown into a pond as local men in teams from localities compete to kill it, with the belief that whoever takes the prize will have a prosperous year ahead. Animal rights activists have been protesting against the cruelty of the festival despite the Nepalese government providing a small amount for the organization of the festivities.
