Help Stop Vietnam’s Cruel Pig Slaughter Festival — PeTA asia

The Nem Thuong Pig Slaughter Festival in Vietnam is one of the worst „festivals“ in the world. For the event—which takes place every Lunar New Year—pigs are tied up and paraded through the streets of Nem Thuong village surrounded by noisy crowds and frightening, loud music. Their throats are then slit while they’re still fully conscious so that villagers can dip money in their blood for „good luck.“

Pigs are social, playful, protective animals who bond with each other, make nests, and relax in the sun. They are known to dream, recognize their own names, learn „tricks“ like sitting for a treat, lead social lives of a complexity previously observed only in primates, and have been seen showing empathy for other pigs who are unhappy or distressed. All pigs deserve long, happy lives, free from suffering and exploitation.

Take Action for Pigs

Torturing and killing animals have never brought anything good into the world, and culture and tradition are no excuse for cruelty. Please take a moment to send a message to officials in Vietnam and ask that they put an end to this cruel festival immediately.

 

Dear {contact_data~firstName} {contact_data~lastName},

The Nem Thuong Pig Slaughter Festival in Vietnam is one of the worst „festivals“ in the world, and I urge you to stop it immediately. Pigs are frightened as they’re tied up and paraded around Nem Thuong, all while loud music is played. Then their throats are slit.

Pigs are extremely intelligent animals and lead social lives of a complexity previously observed only in primates. They are known to dream, recognize their own names, learn „tricks“ like sitting for a treat, and have been seen showing empathy for other pigs who are unhappy or distressed.

Torturing and killing animals have never brought anything good into the world, and culture and tradition are no excuse for cruelty. Please, help secure Vietnam’s image as a beautiful, peaceful, and friendly country by ending this cruel festival immediately.

Sincerely,
