Of a dead stag, stupid tradition and its consecration (Plumlov - October 2008)

Every year from September to November, dead stags, hares, pheasants and others are sacrificed in churches and, over their bodies, in hallowed reverence stand the people whose entertainment and mission is to chase and kill animals (and for this purpose also to care for them). This chase and killing is being blessed by a priest, the Bible is read, people kneel, pray, wind horns and feel solemnly.

It is the St. Hubert’s mass.
