Chendek, Russian Federation
STAG WAITS TO BE DE-HORNED IN RUSSIA.
Local workers pass by drying stag horns in the remote Chendek in
Russia's Gorny Altai region. Some tourists travel thousands of
kilometers and spend hundreds of dollars to watch the extravaganza in
one of Russia's most inaccessible regions which borders Mongolia, China
and Kazakhstan. Picture taken June 11, 2003. REUTERS/Viktor Korotayev
