Ukrainian and Bulgarian environmentalists have got into a scuffle with locals in a southeastern Bulgarian village over a controversial ritual performed there every year.
Dozens of people have arrived in the Brodilovo village in the Strandzha mountains, led by an environmentalist organization and handing out stuffed toy dogs to locals, according to the Bulgarian National Radio.
However, some of the residents have argued no-one has the right to interfere with local traditions....
it\'s not cruelty! it is spinning, that is all, n it get dipped into the water, omg water cryptonite! GIVE ME A BREAK!
A HUGE piece of polar cap is about to break off as we speak, creating a humongous iceberg, n these simpletons occupy themselves with some pooches that get spinned around? They would have a point if those dogs were beaten or were in dog fights, but they aren\'t. This is a lot of noise over nothing.
Personally I don\'t care for this ritual, but if those ukrainians think they can come here n tell us what to do, i\'d get a stick n crack their skulls.
