Two magnificent beasts facing each other head-on, grinding their horns and goring one another in a bloody battle; this is a tradition and one of the famous festivals celebrated in southern Thailand.
These aren’t any ordinary bulls, being chosen at the age of two, they are vigorously trained and fed special diets for over two years and are well groomed to become mean and unmerciful fighting machines.
Apart from tradition, this is one of the top gambling sports in southern Thailand and one of the famous sporting events, with the audience ranging from police chiefs and top politicians to peasants. Betters call bulls with a special name and the fight tickets sell out weeks in advance.
This sport is practiced in only the southern part of Thailand and is subjected to strict regulations. The contests happen weekly and will only take place in legally registered sites. ‘Events and Festivals Blog‘ suggests that you verify with a local before visiting the event whether the event is licensed or not for your safety.
Being criticized by many as animal slaughter, this is a tradition that is a lively hood for many. It is said bullfighting plays a key role in the conservation of local breeds and some say without bullfighting some species may have become extinct. For the record, no bulls are killed in this game because it is very rare that a bull will fight to the death.
