At this traditional village festival , vegetarianism isn't an option.

This social engagement is one for the the die-hard carnivores only - a butcher's festival in a village in eastern Hungary.

The best butchers in the land gather to compete in speedy cutting, slicing and meat processing.

After slaughtering a pig and letting the blood run out, the hair is then burnt off and the butchering begins.

The butchers split the carcasses and chop them up, as every part of the pig is used for eating.
