The Daily Mail has an exposé — complete with gruesome photos, natch — of a horse fighting tournament in the Philippines in which stallions used their annoying teeth to bite each other and their stupid hooves to brutally kick each other.
Though horses do not normally fight one another, these stallions had been whipped into a fighting frenzy by the presence of a young mare who was "in season" and had been staked to the ground in the middle of the muddy arena. Overwhelmed by desire, the stallions attacked each other in a bid to defeat their sexual rivals…
The tournament was equally traumatic for the mare used as "bait" for the stallions. Not only was she repeatedly hit by stray blows from the duelling horses, but the poor creature was also obliged to mate with the victorious stallions from each "bout", meaning that she was mounted as many as 30 times during one tournament which can last up to six hours…
Veterinary care is too expensive for most owners to bother with, so wounded horses are often killed for their meat and the choicest cuts barbecued and sold to the crowd.
See, shit like this happens in places like the Philippines. Those people are more animal than human. Which is why I pay top price for them when I release them onto my private island. They make excellent prey. Very cunning, and vicious when wounded or cornered. You generally need a pistol with big-time stopping power to finish the job, like a .45 or a Desert Eagle.
In conclusion, horse fighting is barbaric.
