Horse Fighting in the Philippines

Once again, horse fighting festivals in the Philippines are making the news. If you think you can stand it, please read this article from a British reporter.

Many people in America are not aware of this gruesome “sport” in which (according to reporters) the defeated horses end up on the barbecue for the crowd’s dining pleasure and the tethered teaser mare is bred (repeatedly, to the crowd’s delight, according to this reporter) by the victorious stallions in each round of fighting.

This article may be too graphic, gruesome and horrifying for many readers. For others, it may be a wake-up call. Do you think that any of these Filipino fight horses would care to trade places with an “abused” carriage horse on New York’s Central Park?
