Karo Kari; The Honor Killing, Even Animals Are Not Spared


Lately i have been writing about honor killing and women is the only victim, but i never knew even animals esp COW has to go through brutal killing.

Villagers from Julah in Tejakula, Buleleng, Indonesia, tow a pregnant cow behind a boat into open sea as part of a local traditional ritual.

The cow, which is five months pregnant, was thrown out to the sea about 3 kilometers from land. The villagers believe the animal was impregnated by a village elder.

During the ritual the man, who was caught red-handed having sexual intercourse with the cow two months ago, joined the boat trip in order to throw away his clothes to to symbolize him discarding his sins.
