Pig slaughter. Yaun Kou, Guizho Province, China

Pig slaughter. Yaun Kou, Guizho Province, China

As the pig slowly dies it is held down. It is gasping for its last breath but the nostrils are plugged by the person's fingers at the head of the pig. As the heart beats the blood poors from the corotid artery that has been severed and collected for later use as a food item.

Each time a pig is slaughtered during this period firecrackers are lit at the moment the knife is used to sever its artery.
