The bloodsport of Horse Fighting must end and local laws enforced
On Sundays and fiesta days the crowd gathers to watch a bloody battle of two stallions pitted against each other with the lure of a mare in season tethered in the small arena. These fights can last for minutes or hours often to the death. For those that suffer fatal injuries there is no vet care and often horses are cruely slaughtered and barbequed for the crowd. The bloodier the battle the more the crowd cheers - often weaker stallions are pitted against stronger horses just to get the crowd revved up. Stallions are often injured just by trying to flee the arena, visiting vets have witnessed eye popped from the sockets of stallions due to the severity of the blows from a rival. Often too the mare suffers blows from the stallions during the fight in which she is forced to mate with the winner of each fight -up 30times a day. These fights are illegal in the Philippines but they continue due to local laws not being enforced and often sponsored by corrupt mobs,and are even televised, for a poor country the Philippines certainly have alot of money to gample on these fights.
