Real piggishness. Pigs at the butcher festival in Transcarpathia were not slaughtered, but … cut and eaten
The butcher festival in Hecha, Berehove raion usually began with the squealing of pigs that were to be slaughtered. Then followed the butcher mastery competition (to decide the best one to disassemble a carcass). Only then the celebration turned into a culinary and folk festival.
However, the Hecha event received a somewhat different accent this year. Vegans protested against the festival. Because of their claiming the festival inhuman, more people got to know about it (protests burst out even in Kyiv from where a message was sent to the Hungarian embassy). In addition, the organisers decided to cancel the scene of the very slaughter of the pigs. The butchers began their work already with the carcasses that were brought to the festival.
