Every year on the third Saturday and Sunday in September, at what is known as the "Cat's Party" or "Party of the Curruñao,"100 cats are drowned, butchered, and consumedas part of the feast of St. Efigenia in the village of La Quebrada in San Luis de Cañete, Peru.Video footagefrom a previous year's festival depicts terrified cats being pinned down in buckets of water to slowly perish, their carcasses then cooked and body parts devoured by participants. Drowning is a horrifying, painful way to die, but despite Peruvian laws explicitly stating that only authorized personnel may religiously sacrifice animals using the most humane methods possible, this event has persisted since 1994.
