AN animal rights charity is fighting to ban an ‘immoral’ and ‘disgusting’ festival which involves people throwing rats at one another.
Campaign group PACMA is calling for the Valencian festival to be banned.
In footage of the ‘Battle of the Rats’ in the town of El Puig, onlookers are shown hurling rats at one another from across the street.
Others fling them from balconies and a huge number of children are also involved.
The rats are believed to be dead before they are thrown at one another.
