The Gazans did not contend themselves to simply slaughtering the animals, but first engaged in torture. The cattle predictably responded by attacking their tormenters.
At least 125 Palestinians in Gaza were wounded while torturing and slaughtering cattle in the streets as part of the Muslim holiday of Eid al Adha, Palestinian media reported.
Gaza has five official slaughterhouses, but wait times were hours long, so a great many Gazans decided to do their own public butchering for the holiday, which is typically accompanied by much feasting.
But, as videos and pictures posted to the Internet revealed, many of the Palestinians did not contend themselves to simply slaughtering the animals, but first engaged in what can only be described as torture.
The cattle predictably responded by attacking their tormenters. The bloody scenes took place on public streets, and photographs showed adults and young children alike fleeing for their lives from the thrashing animals.
Many Gazans later complained that the copious amounts of blood and animal parts left in the streets was creating a health hazard.
