Can you imagine if, for your birthday, instead of a fun party with all your friends, you were expected to torture and kill an innocent animal with your bare hands?

This is the reality for teenagers as young as 14 years old during the First Fruits Festival, an annual event in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, intended to celebrate the coming of age of Zulu warriors.

According to reports, approximately 40 young men push sand or mud down a bull’s throat, gouge out his eyes, and twist his genitals before kicking and beating him to death and tearing his flesh apart with their hands—all of this to prove their “courage.”

DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO BULLS!

Please contact South African officials and urge them to STOP this bloody First Fruits Festival tradition immediately.

the first fruits of man’s evil
will not quickly pass.
when judgement day comes,
such cruelty will bite him
in the ass!
