    Link: Bulgarian Dog Torture Ritual - Ritual is in May, said to prevent rabies. Participants say dogs don`t suffer injuries but I don`t think they ask the dog

    Don`t blame the messenger. We had nothing to do with this. When I see this I can only imagine the poop my dog would spray if in that position.

    That is drating ridiculous and I couldn`t even make it through the whole video. Why was this accepted and posted? poo posted on IAB should be funny, silly, stupid and all the above but this is just torture and does not belong on this site.

    I refuse to watch this too. In line with other comments, this isn`t interesting or entertaining. This is sick and shouldn`t be given a forum on this site.

    But seriously, this is what happens when people follow mystical wives` tales and ignore basic tenets of medical care and science. To those who didn`t view the video: take solace that no dogs were harmed.

    ...... Somehow I figured I wouldn`t be the first one to say this, but apparently you all are crazy.

    Big deal. If some twelve year old volunteered for this, and ended up actually getting hurt because he landed on a rock, we`d all laugh at him, but do this to a dog, and all the sudden it`s torture? Please, I`ve owned dogs my whole life. They`re not human, and they certainly don`t have the seemingly nonexistent pain threshold you all seem to have. They`ll forget this even happened in a week.

    Ya, totally something I`d expect to see on Borat, but, again, big fracking deal.

    i could really give a drat less who posted this where.
    I really more have a problem with what their doing but really ur letting a dog spin violently making it very disoriented and the next thing u do is let it drating fall into a pond really? the dogs look old enough that the spinning wouldn`t kill it and it`s not around it`s neck so it`s not likely it will strangle the dog. but that dog can very easily die from getting water in it`s lung and drown.

    Okay, so you think dogs are dying from this. Here:

    I do this thing where I take my dog to a location where my dog is surrounded by foreign, lethal, predators. There is no way my dog would ever voluntarily go to this place if it wasn`t for the fact that I am there. BECAUSE I`m there, my dog trusts I`ll keep it safe, knowing full well, it very well could be in danger, but it nuts up and accepts that I`m telling her it`s safe to be there, so she`s not scared. Where am I?

    The only difference between this "torture" and a dog park is one is actually good for the dogs mental health. The dog park is a far greater risk to my dogs physical health.

    Hey man you all should know that I did give thought about not posting this. But the dogs here live. This should be defined more as cruelty, not torture.. This festival is sick but how many of you can claim you knew of it? Isn`t there some boredom relief in learning of a inbred hick festival in Bulgaria? We`ve exposed true animal torture here before on IAB. I don`t think this rises anywhere near the girl who threw puppies into the river or the soldier who threw that dog off a cliff. So lets keep this in perspective.

    To be perfectly honest, that kind of looked like fun, Get a couple of beers in me and I would probably volunteer to go next.

    Come to think of it, I don`t think there is a kid in the world who hasn`t done this same exact thing on a swing set.

    "I don`t think there is a kid in the world who hasn`t done this same exact thing on a swing set."

    Be more of a self righteous frack LordJim. Kids do stupid stuff all the time. When they get hurt because of the stupid stuff they do, it IS funny. These dogs weren`t hurt. They were happy to be doing whatever their owners forced them into because the dogs were smart enough to know if the master says it`s safe, go with it. How many dogs have died at dog parks in 2011 in your country? It`s not going to be a small number.

    @Gerry1of1 Of course I didn`t watch the video! I`m not a sicko that wants to see that kind of thing! I don`t think this sort of video should be promoted at all.

    This site has been getting worse and worse about posting disturbing videos. Clearly labeled or not (and sometimes they`re not), I don`t think they need more exposure. Just because the animals weren`t maimed or killed doesn`t mean it isn`t torture. That`s not what I come here to see.

    all i have to say is WTF? so weird/random. why? i mean i doubt the dogs are really hurt but still...it`d be different if they did it with willing volunteers, might be kinda fun but not to some random dog who has no idea wtf is going on.

    Looks to me like a few hundred years ago, an authority told the locals they could no longer drown young women suspected of witchcraft.

    Bummer. It was so entertaining.
