It's turn dogs clamped by a rope extended until that was tense and then thread the dog through a knot at the end.

Local residents then leave the animal to fall into the water with the inertia of the giro.
The terrified dogs reach such high speeds that by the time they fall into the river they are unable to swim..

However, the Pagan tradition – prohibited by law in 2006, but still practiced – This year was thwarted after that organization for the rights of animals montaroan a campaign to denounce the cruelty.
Sofia Animal Rights members have been guarding the banks of the Veleka river, passing the weekend for locals to comply with the law.
