Chinese Bullfight

Yunnan-Guizhou, China - Oh man, this is brutal. Didn't know they have bullfights in China. The major difference is that there the bulls do the fighting, though also one man gets mangled by a bull. The clip comes complete with spanish music (why? LOL) and it's original title was "Yunnan, Guizhou, Super Cow King of life and death fight scene".

I did some research again and here's what I found out:

Bullfight Festival of Miao - the most famous bullfight festival

Date: 25th day of the first lunar month
Place: Guizhou and Yunnan Provinces
Activities: The Miao ethnic minority people are primarily farmers and have come to regard cattle as an indispensable ally, assisting them in all aspects of their daily lives. When the traditional Bullfight Festival comes, hosts feed their cattle well, even giving them wine in the hope that they will perform well. The festival usually held on an even meadow with the Miao people being well dressed on this auspicious occasion.

There are several alternative bullfights: two bulls and up to several bulls fighting etc. When two fight with each other, the result is usually determined within three to five minutes' fierce combat. However, it is only in the last round that decides which Bull is the winner; it may last more than half an hour. During the fight, audiences around the meadow shout loudly making the festival immersive in a fiery scene. Red silk sashes and flowers adorn the first prize bull with food being the Bulls reward. With bonfires being lit within the bullfighting ring whilst the young men play Lusheng (a homemade reed mouth organ with five or six pipes, played by various ethnic groups in southwest China) girls dance for the whole night. By holding the Bull Festival, Miao hope for a favorable harvest in the coming year and good health.
