Kolinje - Backyard Pig Slaughter
Primitive custom of "kolinje" starts off every winter on the last weekend in September. Pig slaughter in the backyards or "kolinje" always results with hundreds of thousands of backyards soaked with blood and many cases of Trichinellosis. People in country households torture and slaughter pigs demonstrating the most brutal act in a relationship between man and animal. It is considered to be a great part of Croatian tradition and an opportunity for party and folk entertainment.
