MAJALAYA, Indonesia
A gory fight to the death between snarling dogs and captured wild boars. Gathered around a bamboo-walled arena, Indonesians in this remote part of Java island seem eager to watch the blood-curdling contests, known locally as 'adu bagong' (boar fighting). Not surprisingly, animal rights activist are up in arms against the regular spectacle, which began in the 1960s when wild pig numbers in this area in West Java soared and they were hunted to protect crops. Participants told Reuters the fights were a way to preserve a tradition of hunting in the area. There's also a cash prize for the winning dog. The fights take place in a 15-by-30 metre arena surrounded by a bamboo fence to protect spectators and only end when one of the animals is injured. If a boar survives a fight, once healed it will be returned to the arena to fight another day. If not, it will be butchered and sold for meat. Dog owners pay anywhere from 200,000 rupiah to 2 million rupiah ($15 to $150) to enter the fights, depending on the size of their dog. REUTERS/Beawiharta SEARCH "BOAR FIGHT" FOR THIS STORY.
